Abstract

Two kinds of nacre-inspired materials, including artificial carbonate nanocrystals and layered structural nanocomposites are reviewed by Shu-Hong Yu and co-workers on page 163. Nacre is a naturally occurring material that can be found on the inner surfaces of molluscs, for example mussels. The review presents an overview of the latest developments and advances in the synthesis and fabrication, as well as applications of such nacre-inspired materials.
