Low molecular weight gels can be responsive to a range of external stimuli. The use of light as an external stimulus to modify gels is of particular interest for a number of reasons. Light is a non-invasive trigger. For example, using light it is possible to spatially target a specific area of the gel leading to patterned gel surfaces. Here, we review the different approaches that have been used to form low molecular weight gels that respond to light.
