Abstract: Amphiphilic peptides typically consist of a peptide portion that may be 5 -25 (or more) amino acids in length. The hydrophobic portion may be a single fatty acid residue, but can also be more elaborate. The main focus of this article lies on the family of synthetic anion binders (SATs) of the general structure (R 1 ) 2 N-COCH 2 OCH 2 CO-(Aaa) n -OR 3 . The most-common R 1 group is the octadecyl (C 18 H 37 ) group. The most studied peptide sequence in this family is (Gly) 3 -Pro-(Gly) 3 , although different se…
