In recent years, considerable effort has been devoted to the preparation of artificial nanotubular materials. One of the most successful approaches for the construction of noncovalently bonded nanotube entities is the self-assembly of cyclic polypeptides in stacks that are stabilized by hydrogen bonds. This tutorial review covers the history and current situation for synthetic organic nanostructures obtained from self-assembling cyclic peptides. In particular, we describe the evolution to… CONTINUE READING
