Abstract

The recent studies on the structure and properties of polypeptide liquid crystals, which are formed in solution as well as in the solid state, are reviewed in this article. Especially the cholesteric pitch and the cholesteric sense (right-handed or left-handed), which are characteristic factors of cholesteric liquid crystals, are discussed in detail in relation to the effects of temperature, concentration, and solvent. Further cholesteric liquid crystalline structure retained in cast films and thermotropic mesomorphic state in some copolypeptides are also discussed.
