Objective: Long-term stable and highly versatile and technologically important sol-gel derived material’s synthesis, characterization and some of its potential applications are presented.

Methods: Multifunctional sol-gel precursor is added with 3,5-bis(trifluoromethyl)benzylamine derived peptide self assembled nanotubes (BTTPNTs), to form a core-shell, BTTPNTs@SiO2 matrix. The prepared material is characterized by UV-vis absorbance (UV-vis), Diffuse Reflectance Spectra (DRS), X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), Field Emission-Scanning Electron Microscopy (FE-SEM), Confocal Raman Spectral and Imaging (CRS & CRM), Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) and Transmittance Electron Microscopy (TEM).

Result: The obtained results clearly revealed the expected BTTPNTs implanted core and SiO2 as shell in the formed nanocomposites.

Conclusion: Cyclic Voltammetry (CV) studies explore the sensing activity and UV-vis spectroscopy presents the smart UV protective ability of the coated glass systems.

Keywords: Photo-physical properties, core-shell nanocomposites, FT-Raman, CRM, smart glass system, biosensors.
