Abstract: Here, we demonstrate a chemical modification strategy to create biomaterials of the M13 bacteriophage with extraordinary thermal stability, and high compatibility with non-aqueous ionic liquids. The results provide a blueprint for developing soft materials with well-defined architectures that may find broad applicability in the next generation of flexible devices.
