Five bis(isocyanuric) acid dimers have been prepared and characterised. The introduction of flexible alkyl chains was necessary to aid solubility. On mixing with N,N-bis(4-tert-butyphenyl)melamine in THF followed by slow evaporation, a viscous gel can form which is interpreted as evidence for the assembly of an infinite 2-D hydrogen bonded network.
