Light-powered and transient peptide two-dimensional assembly driven by trans-to-cis isomerization of azobenzene side chains

Author affiliations

Abstract

Transient nanosheets were fabricated based on the ionic self-assembly of anionic polyoxometalates and cationic peptides appended with azobenzene side chains. The two-dimensional (2D) nanostructures are initiated through ultraviolet (UV) light-actuated trans-to-cis isomerization of azobenzene moieties.
