Abstract

original image

Selbstorganisierte organische Nanostrukturen zeigen laut AFM-Experimenten mit einer Diamantspitze einen bemerkenswerten Young-Modul bis 275 GPa, der an Werte für Metalle heranreicht. In der Zuschrift auf S. 10 135 ff. legen E. Gazit, I. Rousso et al. dar, dass diese Nanokügelchen aus aromatischen Dipeptiden zu den starrsten organischen Materialien gehören und somit interessante Bausteine für hochfeste Biokompositmaterialien sind.
