Supramolecular assemblies and gels from helicene-polypeptide conjugates: synthesis and chiroptical properties
This work will be focused on the preparation and characterization of new supramolecular systems based on helicene-polypeptide conjugates. The polypeptide moiety will be systematically modified to produce highly ordered supramolecular aggregates stabilized by hydrogen and other interactions. Common methods of structural analysis including highly sensitive methods of chiroptical spectroscopy (electronic circular dichroism ECD, vibrational circular dichroism VCD and Raman optical activity ROA) will be used for the characterization.
