The hydrogelation property of a simple amino acid-based amphiphile (left) was investigated by means of spectroscopic and microscopic techniques. Intermolecular hydrogen bonding between amide N[BOND]H and carbonyl oxygen, and π–π stacking between the indole rings, as well as hydrophobic interactions, were found to be responsible for the formation of a hydrogel that shows high supramolecular chirality (right).
