Interfacial ordering of thermotropic liquid crystals triggered by the secondary structures of oligopeptides

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report that assemblies formed by eight oligopeptides at phospholipid-decorated interfaces of thermotropic liquid crystals (LCs) trigger changes in ordering of the LCs that are dependent on the secondary structures of the oligopeptides (as characterized in situ using infrared-visible sum-frequency spectroscopy).
