A new class of molecules for the preparation of self-assembling biomaterials were synthesized. These molecules consist of a cholesteryl-moiety attached via an oligo(ethylene oxide) or oligo(L-lactic acid) segment to a biologically relevant headgroup. The oligomers were characterized using SAXS, DSC and optical microscopy.
