Aqueous solutions containing a boronic-acid-appended amphiphile with a L-glutamate segment were gelatinized in the presence of certain saccharides. Examination of the gelation temperature, DSC, and the absorption spectra of a cyanine dye revealed that this is a novel system having two phase-transitions, viz., the sol-gel phase transition and the gel-liquid crystal phase transition.
