Spray-on: Peptide amphiphiles (PAs) and oppositely charged polymers can self-assemble into highly organized membranes (see picture) at the interface between two aqueous solutions. Nebulization was employed to spray the biopolymer into a solution of the peptide amphiphile and to template the formation of microcapsules that are loaded with a biopolymer solution and have surfaces that are decorated with nanoscale filaments.
