Abstract

Supramolecular nanostructures covered with bioactive functional molecules have been actively explored as promising materials in the field of biotechnology. Recent advances in nano-sized chemistry have made it possible to fabricate various kinds of nanostructures with tailor-made nanostructural properties. This, combined with appropriate bioactive functionalization, has led to the successful utilization of supramolecular nanostructures in diverse biomaterials applications. This tutorial review describes the concept, current developments, and prospects of self-assembled bioactive nanostructures, which are assembled directly from bioactive supramolecular building blocks.
