Abstract

Here we report the first example of a hydrogelator made of a conjugate of nucleobase-saccharide-amino acids by incorporating L-3-(2-naphthyl)-alanine to the conjugate, which illustrates a facile and effective method for generating bioactive and functional hydrogelators from the basic biological building blocks.
