Abstract

Two lanthanide luminescent naphthyl-dipicolinic amide (dpa) methacrylate monomers for the synthesis of grafted supramolecular co-polymer gels (hydrogels), and their use as additional crosslinks in robust covalently cross-linked HEMA hydrogels is presented; the results demonstrate the importance of the ligand symmetry for the Eu(iii) emission from the hydrogels.
