Abstract

We use a range of spectroscopic methods to provide mechanistic insight into a phosphatase-driven supramolecular transformation whereby an amphiphilic peptide building block, upon dephosphorylation, switches from a solution-phase, micellar structure to a gel-phase, chiral uni-directional nanofibre morphology.
