Stimulate the transition: Our limited ability in predicting self-assembly in water hampers the design of new hydrogelators. The problem is exacerbated when multiresponsiveness is required; the need of introducing multiple chemical switches imposes further limitations on the design. Herein efficient multiresponsive hydrogelators based on a modular design are presented. Each module has a chemical switch with the appropriate hydrophilicity to make it compatible with gel assembly (see figure).
