Self-Assembled Nanomaterials Based on Perfluorophenyl-Capped Dipeptides

Abstract—Herein, we report a series of low-molecular-weight hydrogelators and prove that the phenyl-perfluorophenyl pair in the structure of the hydrogelators can be used to promote the formation of the supramolecular hydrogels in physiological condition. Further spectroscopic study indicates the aromatic-aromatic and hydrogen-bonding interactions might be the major driving force behind the self-assembly of the nanostructured hydrogels. Biocompatible experiments of the hydrogelators were carried out on HeLa and MCF-7 cells which indicate the newly discovered hydrogelators are potential biomaterials.

Index Terms—Phenyl-perfluorophenyl pair, hydrogel, nanofiber, biomaterials.
