Abstract

Solvent diffusion in a prototypical supramolecular gel probed by quasi-elastic neutron scattering on the picosecond timescale is faster than that in the respective bulk solvent. This phenomenon is hypothesised to be due to disruption of the hydrogen bonding of the solvent by the large hydrophobic surface of the gel network.
