Pairs of peptide amphiphiles with immiscible hydrophobic tails were synthesized and their assembly formation was investigated. These pairs formed self-sorting supramolecular fibres using a standard heating–cooling protocol, while one pair with longer hydrophobic tails formed a co-assembly when an additional heating process was applied.
