Abstract

Spatial control over gelation with low molecular weight gelators is possible using an electrochemically-driven pH triggering method. Gelation occurs at the electrode surface. We show here that composition control in multi-component low molecular weight hydrogels can also be achieved, allowing simultaneous spatial, temporal and compositional control.
