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 (
