Synthetic poly(2-oxazoline)s are considered as pseudo-peptides exhibiting interesting materials and solution properties including stimuli-sensitivity and complex/hierarchical self-assembly. The advanced macromolecular engineering of polyoxazolines, including the synthesis of biohybrids, and the “smart”/bioinspired aggregation behavior in solution are discussed.
