The achiral liquid crystalline materials showing two B4 (HN) phases have been found to exhibit strong gelation ability for various organic solvents with reversible sol-gel phase transition. The gel is formed by helical tubules{,} which build entangled 3D network{,} encapsulating the solvent. The equilibrium of left- and right-handed tubules is preserved in the gel{,} even if the chiral solvent is used.
