Noncovalent interactions have been used to modify the binding properties of two-armed diketopiperazine receptors by ionic self-assembly and induced the formation of liquid-crystalline (LC) materials. The properties of the LC material were in turn modified by binding to a selectively recognized peptidic guest.
