As you like it: The synthesis of supramolecular hierarchical nanostructures with designed morphologies has been realized through computer-simulation-guided multicomponent assembly of polypeptide-based block copolymers and homopolymers. By adjusting the attraction between hydrophobic polypeptide rods, as well as other parameters such as the molar ratio of copolymers and the rigidity of polymers, a variety of morphologies were obtained.
