Construction of functional molecular devices by directed assembly processes is one of the main challenges in the field of nanotechnology. Many approaches to this challenge use biological assembly as a source of inspiration for the build up of new materials with controlled organization at the nanoscale. In particular, the self-assembly properties of β-sheet peptides have been used in the design of supramolecular materials, such as tapes, nanotubes, and fibrils.
