Abstract

From little things big things grow: 14-Helical N-acetyl beta3 -peptides spontaneously self-assemble in a unique head-to-tail fashion to form fibers from solution. The fiber size can be controlled from the nano- to the macroscale. The inherent flexibility in design and ease of synthesis provide powerful new avenues for the development of novel bio- and nanomaterials by supramolecular self-assembly.
