Abstract

A family of bis-urea derivatives has been synthesized and shown to function as effective gelators in certain organic solvents. The X-ray structure of one bis-urea shows a cylindrical hydrogen bonding network with extensive interdigitation of the alkyl esters which project from the central rod.
