The pH-induced self-assembly approach will be employed to produce the supramolecular structures. Besides the whole scattering characterization scheduled to be performed in Brazil, cryo-TEM imaging will be performed in the Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry to shed light on the morphology of the produced assemblies. This particular experimental tool is not available in Brazil. (AU)
