Over the last 12 months a number of papers have been published which shed light on the processes that control the self-assembly of peptides into fibrous hydrogel networks. A number of new properties of dipeptide hydrogels have also been reported. This article highlights recent activity in the area of peptide self-assembly, with a particular focus on tri-peptides, di-peptides and protected amino acids.
