We investigated the self-aggregation of 12 short ionic oligopeptides constituted by 4-7 amino acid residues to establish useful structure-property relationships that might be exploited in the biomedical field by using the concept of molecular Lego. We show that the critical aggregation concentration (CAC) of tetrapeptides decreases with increasing hydrophobicity of neutral residues. Additionally, ...
