Different morphologies of MOC-based hydrogels. a Self-assembly of MOC with molecular binders, N-(2-aminoethyl)-1,3-propanediamine (AEPD), guanidine hydrochloride (gua.HCl) and β-alanine (β-ala) results in stable hydrogels with nano-bouquet, nano-sheet and nano-cube morphologies, respectively. b FESEM and c TEM images (scale bar = 2 μm) of MOC-G2 hydrogel showing the formation of nano-bouquet morphology. d FESEM (scale bar = 500 nm) and e TEM (scale bar = 200 nm) images of MOC-G3 hydrogel showing the formation of nano-sheet morphology. f FESEM (scale bar = 1 μm) and g TEM (scale bar = 200 nm) images of MOC-G4 hydrogel showing the formation of nanocube morphology
