Novel specific peptides as superior surface stabilizers for silver nano structures: role of peptide chain length

Author affiliations

Abstract

Three new collagen mimetic peptides containing the CLK motif as anchoring arms were tested for silver nanoparticle surface stabilization. Our experimental and molecular dynamics data indicate that peptide length has an important effect not only in the resulting nanosilver's colloidal stability, but also in the biological performance of the composite.
