Abstract

The polyion complex-based supramolecular self-assembly of hexagonal nanosheets was achieved via the complexation of a PEGylated block catiomer with ATP and other polyphosphate-containing small molecules. The formation of hexagonal nanosheets required the presence of a polyethylene glycol block and α-helix formation in the catiomer block, which was induced by complexation with the polyphosphate moiety.
