Nematic and hexagonal columnar liquid crystal phase formation by a PEG-peptide conjugate is reported. The results are relevant to peptide-polymer Conjugates and bionanomaterial self-assembly (with relevance to PEGylated peptides used in therapeutic applications). The use of modified fragments of the amyloid beta peptide is especially interesting with respect to amyloid fibrillization and its control.
