A physical, self-assembled trimer of (dopamine)2/5,6-dihydroxyindole (DHI) that exists in polydopamine, which has been known to be formed only by covalent polymerization, is reported. A different perspective of polydopamine formation is revealed where it forms in part by the self-assembly of dopamine and DHI, providing a new clue to understanding the structures of catecholamines such as melanin.
