Amino acid–bile acid based molecules: extremely narrow surfactantnanotubes formed by a phenylalanine-substituted cholic acid

Author affiliations

Abstract

An amino acid-substituted bile acid forms tubular aggregates with inner and outer diameters of about 3 and 6 nm. The diameters are unusually small for surfactant self-assembled tubes. The results enhance the spectrum of applications of supramolecular tubules and open up possibilities for investigating a novel class of biological amphiphiles.
