Overview

This first comprehensive overview of the modern aspects of biomineralization represents life and materials science at its best: Bioinspired pathways are the hot topics in many disciplines and this holds especially true for biomineralization.
Here, the editors — all well-known members of associations and prestigious institutes — have assembled an international team of renowned authors to provide first-hand research results.
From the contents:
VOLUME 1: BIOLOGICAL ASPECTS AND STRUCTURE FORMATION
Silica-Hydrated Polysilicondioxide
Iron Sulfides and Oxides
Calcium Carbonates and Sulfates
Calcium Phosphates

VOLUME 2: BIOMIMETIC AND BIOINSPIRED CHEMISTRY
Biometic Model Systems in Biomineralization
The Biomineral Approach to Bionics
Bio-inspired Materials Synthesis
Bio-supported Materials Chemistry
Protein Cages as Size-contrained Reaction Vessels
Encapsulation
Imaging of Internal Nanostructures of Biominerals

VOLUME 3: MEDICAL AND CLINICAL ASPECTS
Bone
Teeth
Pathological Calcifications

An interdisciplinary must-have account, for biochemists, bioinorganic chemists, lecturers in chemistry and biochemistry, materials scientists, biologists, and solid state physicists.

With forewords by Jeremy D. Pickett-Heaps, Stephen Mann, and Wolfgang Pompe.
