Hereby the gelator F2-PAP-DKP-Lys can be turned into a sol upon irradiation with green light and within this transition a drug, for example an antibiotic, was released. The further improved supergelator Cl4-PAP-DKP-Lys2 is reversibly switchable with red and violet light in the range of 0.2-0.5% in an isotonic Ringer's solution. At a concentration of 1%, the hydrogel consisting of Cl4-PAP-DKP-Lys2 remains stable in a boiling water bath. Thus, we envision that the enhanced stability of the supramolecular assembly of Cl4-PAP-DKP-Lys2 and orthogonal biocompatibility of F2-PAP-DKP-Lys, could enable further applications, spanning from regenerative medicine to electronic devices, besides our future vision towards photopharmacology.
