The design and control of molecular self-assembly is of great interest in the development of new molecular architectures with multiple desired functions or properties. In this context, the gelling systems formed by low molecular weight gelators are particularly promising and are the subject of an ever increasing number of studies. Thus, owing to their non-conventional behaviour, low molecular weight gelators are very attractive for applications in various areas, including supramolecular templates or matrices, transport and drug release, art conservation, cosmetics, sensors, optoelectronics or actuators. However, despite numerous efforts to establish a structure-property relationship for the development of low molecular weight gelling agents, prediction of the gelling ability of a compound is not straightforward. A major challenge today is the rational design of small size molecular gelators coupled with an understanding of the mechanism of gelation.
