Abstract/Summary

A triphenylalanine-based superhydrogel shows automatic syneresis (self-compressing properties) with time and this self-shrinking behavior has been successfully utilized to remove toxic lead ions and organic dyes from waste-water efficiently with the ability to re-use for a few times.
