About this Book
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
Iron Sulfides and Oxides
Calcium Carbonates and Sulfates
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
Imaging of Internal Nanostructures of Biominerals
VOLUME 3: MEDICAL AND CLINICAL ASPECTS
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.
