Templating the 3D structure of conducting polymers with self-assembling peptides

Author affiliations

Abstract

Self-assembly of a tetrapeptide covalently attached to a thiophene-based monomer produced a gel with a fibrous, porous structure. Conditions were identified in which the thiophene end groups could undergo polymerization while retaining the 3D structure, resulting in the formation of nanofibrous gels with conductivities averaging 10−4 S cm−1.
