Supramolecular gels that change their state or structure in response to anion stimuli have been highlighted. Only a few examples exist of such supramolecular gels, the structures and properties of which can be controlled and modulated by interactions with anions. To form anion-responsive dimensionally-controlled organized structures, the constituent low-molecular-weight gelator molecules must act as anion receptors by possessing one or more of van der Waals interaction units (aliphatic chains), stacking pi planes, hydrogen-bonding sites, and metal-coordination units. This Concept focuses on the gelation and transition behaviors of amide- and urea-based anion-stimulated systems, metal-coordinated systems, and novel acyclic pi-conjugated oligopyrroles that act as "molecular flippers."
