Abstract

Say cheeeese! The thixotropic processes that occur in a naphthalenediimide-based organogel can be imaged in real time by TEM and AFM (see picture). The self-assembled 1D fibers disintegrate under mechanical stress and undergo a self-healing process during a resting time to reconstitute the 1D fibers.
