Summary The molecular self-assembling study of the amphiphilic homopolymer, poly(4-ethynylbenzoyl-L-isoleucine) (PEBIle), demonstrates that its aggregation favors the formation of ordered nanovesicular and nanotubular structures upon evaporation of its methanol solutions. The AFM and TEM observations revealed the co-existence of the two organizational structures, strongly supporting that the tubules are resulted from the coalescence of the vesicles. Further variation of the tubular structure promoted the formation of the multistranded helical tubes by winding up the single-stranded nanotubules.
