Diphenylalanine self assembly: novel ion mobility methods showing the essential role of water.


The mechanism and driving forces behind the formation of diphenylalanine (FF) nanotubes have attracted much attention in the past decades. The hollow structure of the nanotubes suggests a role for water during the self-assembly process. Here, we use novel ion-mobility mass spectrometry methods to probe the early oligomers formed by diphenylalanine peptides… (More)
