- An aromatic peptoid analogue of the diphenylalanine dipeptide self-assembles in aqueous solution and the first crystal structure was obtained for this class of compound. This reveals molecular packing stabilized by networks of hydrogen bonds. Free-floating nanosheet lamellar structures are observed in solution, which form via cooperative intermolecular interactions driven by π stacking.
