Abstract: A new approach of engineering of molecular gels was established on the basis of a nucleation-initiated network formation mechanism. A variety of gel network structures can be obtained by regulating the starting temperature of the sol - gel transition. This enables us to tune the network from the spherulitic domains pattern to the extensively interconnected fibrillar network. As the consequence of fibrous network structure turning, desirable Rheological and other in-use properties of the materials can be obtained accordingly. This approach of micro-/ nanostructural fabrication may open up a new route for micro-/nanofunctional materials engineering in general. © 2006 American Chemical Society.
