A new approach to molecular self-assembly through formation of dipeptide-based unique architectures by artificial supersaturation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Morphological transition and the fabrication of unique architectures through molecular self-assembly of dipeptides are caused by the formation of a small nucleus in artificial supersaturation, achieved by quick drying of the solvent due to the local Joule heating. The growth mechanism of “diatom-like” porous microspheres and microtubes is proposed on the basis of several new techniques developed in the study.
