This book provides a unified state-of-the-art approach to the application of biological products and processes in materials research. While biomimetrics has been defined as the imitation of biological processes, "Biomimetric Materials Chemistry" goes beyond this limited definition. The work demonstrates the diversity and multifaceted dimensions of biomimetric materials chemistry which is often only loosely associated with the direct imitation of natural processes. The book proves the field is united in the vision that the design and fabrication of new "unnatural" materials can be refined by a knowledge and understanding of related "natural" products and processes.

Editorial Reviews

Surveys the current state of applying concepts, mechanisms, and products from biological systems to the synthesis, design, and processing of inorganic nanoparticles, thin patterned films, ceramics, organic-inorganic composites, and other advanced materials. Among the topics are biomineralization, strategies, organized protein cages, template-directed nucleation, and ceramics processing with biogenic additives. Does not consider the synthesis of artificial muscles, joints, skin, and other soft materials. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
