Especially, the simultaneous dissolution of two chemically different compounds remains challenging. Herein, macromolecular solubilizers are introduced for the simultaneous dissolution and encapsulation of poorly water‐soluble cholesterol and hydroxyapatite. The peptide‐based, amphiphilic block copolymers possess physicochemically disparate segments combined in one polymer chain as binding sites for hydrophobic as well as ionic materials. Small polymer libraries are synthesized and screened for structure–property relationships. Complementary analytical techniques suggest polymeric self‐assembly into spherical adaptive nanoparticles with the fundamental ability to passively absorb significant amounts of hydrophobic cholesterol up to 33 wt%. Furthermore, the additional incorporation of acidic domains enables the simultaneous dissolution of hydrophobic compounds and mineral phases such as hydroxyapatite. Ultimately, those nontoxic block copolymers can be used to solubilize and absorb other lipophilic and ionic compounds such as Sudan III dye and calcium ions. Such multifunctional nanomaterials have a wide range of direct application for simultaneous dissolution or delivery of hydrophobic molecules and cations resp. minerals for instance in the field of atherosclerosis.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Ruiz-Agudo, Cristina</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Avaro, Jonathan</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
