Abstract

Synthesis of biologically active peptide-polymer amphiphiles (PPAs), and characterization of assemblies formed by PPAs at the interfaces of liquid crystal (LC) microdroplets, is shown to permit the use of PPAs in strategies that can trigger ordering transitions in LC microdroplets in response to targeted biomolecular events.
