Supramolecular control of self-assembling terthiophene–peptide conjugates through the amino acid side chain

Author affiliations

Abstract

The self-assembly of oligothiophene–peptide conjugates can be directed through the systematic variation of the peptide sequence into different nanostructures, including flat spicules, nanotubes, spiral sheets, and giant, flat sheets. Furthermore, the assembly of these molecules is not controlled by steric interactions between the amino acid side chains.
