Protein-inspired materials: Synthetic concepts and potential applications

Absolute uniform chain lengths and amino acid sequences as well as well-defined folding patterns that determine structure and properties characterize natural proteins. Advances in chemical and biological peptide synthesis allow improved control over the composition and structure of artificial proteins and peptide hybrid materials, which opens up pathways for the development of new protein-inspired materials, for example, reversible protein hydrogels (see scheme).
