Materials Taking a Lesson from Nature

Structural biomaterials with their often extraordinary properties and versatile functions are typically constructed from very limited sets of building blocks and types of supramolecular interactions. In this review we discuss how, inspired by nature's design principles for protein-based materials, oligopeptide-modified polymers can be used as a versatile toolbox to program nanostructure and hierarchical structure formation in synthetic materials.
