Abstract

The numerous potential applications of tubular molecules or supramolecules in such fields as biosensing, pharmacology, or catalysis continue to drive the search for new strategies for their construction. This article reviews the design, preparation, characterization, and application status of nanotubular structures obtained from cyclic peptides by self-assembly.
