  • Poly-L-glutamic acid (PGA) is a widely used biomaterial, with applications ranging from drug delivery and biological glues to food products and as a tissue engineering scaffold. A biodegradable material with flexible conjugation functional groups, tunable secondary structure, and mechanical properties, PGA has potential as a tunable matrix material in mechanobiology. Some recent studies in proteins connecting dynamics, nanometer length scale rigidity, and secondary structure suggest a new point of view from which to analyze and develop this promising material. Our paper characterizes the structure, topology, and rigidity properties of PGA prepared with different molecular weights and secondary structures through variousmore » techniques including scanning electron microscopy, FTIR, light, and neutron scattering spectroscopy. On the length scale of a few nanometers, rigidity is determined by hydrogen bonding interactions in the presence of neutral species and by electrostatic interactions when the polypeptide is negatively charged. Finally, when probed over hundreds of nanometers, the rigidity of these materials is modified by long range intermolecular interactions that are introduced by the supramolecular structure.« less
  • We report the results of high-pressure Raman and X-ray diffraction measurements performed on ammonium squarate ((NH{sub 4}){sub 2}C{sub 4}O{sub 4}, AS), a representative supramolecular architecture based on hydrogen bonding and {pi}-stacking interactions, at various pressures up to 19 GPa. Two phase transitions at 2.7 GPa and in the pressure range of 11.1-13.6 GPa were observed. Both Raman and XRD results provide convincing evidence for these two phase transitions. The first phase transition is attributed to the rearrangements of hydrogen-bonding networks, resulting in the symmetry transformation from P2{sub 1}/c to P1. The second one, which is identified as an order-disorder phasemore » transition, arises from significant modifications of squarate rings and random orientations of NH{sub 4}{sup +} cations. The cooperative effects between hydrogen-bonding and {pi}-stacking interactions, as well as mechanisms for the phase transitions, are discussed by virtue of the local structure of AS.« less
