Molecular self-assembly has led to a breakthrough in the field of nanomaterials. This has also resulted in a myriad of potential applications in biology and chemistry. Peptides have proven to be the most promising platforms owing to their biocompatibility and diversity. They are also most studied amongst the other classes of organic building blocks due to their uncanny resemblance to the proteins. There is a wide spectrum of literature available wherein the self-assembly of peptides has been constructed using several amino acids and sequences. The wide range of potential applications of such structures has been explored in drug delivery, surfactants, tissue engineering, etc. This chapter focuses on peptide self-assembly formed by non-coded amino acids, and formation of different nanostructures, using a crystallographic approach. © 2020, Springer Nature Switzerland AG.
