Abstract

original image

Peptide assembly: A 2D peptide (Aβ16-22) film was produced successfully by introducing hydrated electrons into the assembly process of Aβ16-22 (see figure). The interplay between experiment and theoretical calculation indicates that the film formation can be enhanced through the interactions between hydrated electrons and Aβ16-22.
