We designed and prepared supramolecular structures formed from N-lipidated oligopeptides immobilized in the regular pattern on the cellulose surface which are capable of specific binding of ligand molecule. Due to the conformational flexibility of the fragments forming the supramolecular structure, the shape and prosperities the binding cavities are adjusted the most effectively to requirements of the guest molecules. The previous studies documented that process of binding guest molecules is highly selective, reversible and competitive. Therefore, we supposed that under favorable circumstances the structures could operate as catalysts if suitable molecular fragment are included inside the binding pocket. In order to verify this hypothesis we prepared library of supramolecular hosts with catalytic triade: His Asp(Glu) Ser, incorporated into the binding pocket .
The rate of hydrolysis of p-nitophenyl esters of N-protected amino acids was measured by spectrophotometric determination of liberated p-nitrophenole in buffered, aqueous methanol and compared with appropriate data obtained in the absence of catalytic structures. It has been found, that several supramolecular structures shown catalytic activity. The most active catalysts were selected from the library and their stability, selectivity and ability for re-use was studied.
