Hannah M. König and Andreas F. M. Kilbinger Learning from Nature: β-Sheet-Mimicking Copolymers Get Organized Angewandte Chemie International Edition 46
Folding sheets: Organizing polymers with the help of β-sheet peptides is an emerging field of polymer research. The peptides employed to date range from linear and cyclic α peptides to fully synthetic peptide analogues. Nature's most basic lesson of secondary structure formation has been learned. Predicting the higher levels of hierarchical organization of peptide–copolymer aggregates will be the topic of the many lessons to come.
