A 68-membered macrocycle undergoes ultrasound-induced supramolecular gelation in acetonitrile. The sonogel shows a remarkable thermostability, indicating that self-assembly is mediated by exceptionally robust non-covalent interactions. Model compounds indicate that the macrocyclic topology is essential for gelation to occur.

The current recommendation prototype on the Apollo Repository will be turned off on 03 February 2023. Although the pilot has been fruitful for both parties, the service provider IKVA is focusing on horizon scanning products and so the recommender service can no longer be supported. We recognise the importance of recommender services in supporting research discovery and are evaluating offerings from other service providers.
