A self-assembling gababutin-based dipeptide possesses a supramolecular double helix framework in the crystal structure. A typical C9-turn of the dipeptide spontaneously self-assembles into a supramolecular double helical architecture.

Electrifying Catalysis: Leveraging the power of electric current, Suzuki–Miyaura cross-coupled products have been achieved using peptide bolaamphiphile hydrogel-supported Pd NPs as heterogeneous electrocatalyst.
Multicomponent Reaction: Nucleopeptide is coupled using multicomponent reaction to evolve guanosine-quadruplex hydrogel, which exhibits inherent antibacterial activity.
