Abstract

'Imogolite', a tubular inorganic nanotube surface, was modified with a peptide oligomer to prepare a hybrid hydrogel. The formation of the gels was confirmed by conducting a vial inversion test and rheological measurements. The surface modification of imogolite with the peptide oligomer was verified by performing thermogravimetric analysis and circular dichroism measurements. Furthermore, the formation of the network-like morphology of the prepared hydrogel was confirmed by scanning force microscopy.
