The present dissertation focuses on the different properties of selfaggregation processes of mixed molecular systems with the aim to design and optimize complex structures that promote the triggering of sequences leading to the deposition, nucleation and growth of hydroxyapatite crystals with the proper geometry and orientation. New strategies and novel synthetic routes were effectively developed, resulting in economically viable materials that mimic the structure and composition of the extracellular matrix, making them eligible and suitable for numerous applications in tissue regeneration and biomedical engineering.
