Abstract

Surface-mediated self-assembly has potential in biomaterial development but underlying rules governing surface-gelator interactions are poorly understood. Here, we correlate surface properties with structural characterization data of nucleoside-based gels obtained by GISAXS and GIWAXS and find that hydrophobicity descriptors (logP, polar surface area, aromaticity) are key predictors for the gel structures formed.
