Bulky toroidal and vesicular self-assembled nanostructures from fullerene end-capped rod-like polymers

Author affiliations

Abstract

In this work, we present novel fullerene (C60) end-capped rod-like polypeptide-polymers, obtained by one-pot thiol–ene chemistry. These systems are able to self-assemble in water creating precise bulky microstructures of toroidal or vesicular shapes. Independent molecular dynamics simulations supported the observed experimental results.
