Thus, the IL induced gelation was observed at 85% lower Ionic liquids concentration. These ionogels were probed in the 0.1%–1.0% (w/v) concentration region of DNA where the Structure hydrogels never form. The gelation temperature T (and gel strength G ,G is low frequency storage modulus) gel 0 0 Gelation
