Abstract

The synthesis of cadmium sulfide (CdS) by a novel class of unsymmetric bolaamphiphiles containing peptide segments, which self assembled into nanofibres, was analyzed. Cadmium sulfide mineralization of bolaamphiphiles was carried out by suspending 10 mg of 1 wt % gels in a dilute aqueous solution of Cd 2+ion ratio and solution pH of approximately 6. The increased width of the CdS structures can be attributed to growth of the mineral phase after its initial nucleation. The results show that the chemical environmental of the p-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) aromatic moieties is also affected, resulting in some attenuation.
