The consequences of using saccharides versus tetra(ethyleneglycol) chains as water-compatible moieties on the morphology and dynamics of supramolecular polymers in aqueous solutions are investigated. The saccharides form many H-bonds with other saccharides within the polymer and with water, increasing the hydration of the fiber and changing its dynamics.
