Orthogonal strategy for the synthesis of dual-functionalised β3-peptide based hydrogels Academic Article uri icon


  • We describe a new class of hydrogelator based on helical β3-peptide foldamers carrying a bioactive payload. The β3-peptides self-assemble to form a nanofibrous mesh resulting in a stable hydrogel. Co-incubation with different β3-peptide monomers allowed tuning of cell adherence.
