Recent advances in controlling the internal and external properties of self-assembling cyclic peptide nanotubes and dimers

Author affiliations

Abstract

One of the most powerful strategies for the preparation of nanotubes is based on the stacking of flat-shaped cyclic peptide components. This strategy allows precise control of the nanotube internal diameter, the external properties and, more recently, the structural characterisitics of the internal cavity. The recent advances in these technologies and the applications of the resulting materials are described.
