1.D.121. The Amphiphilic Dendritic Dipeptide Helical Pore-forming (AKKP) Family
Percec et al. 2004 described a library of amphiphilic dendritic dipeptides (ADD) that self-assemble in solution and in bulk through a complex recognition process into helical pores. They found that the molecular recognition and self-assembly process was sufficiently robust to tolerate a range of modifications to the amphiphilic structure, while proton transport measurements establish that the pores are functional.
