Form follows the ion: The morphogenesis of fluorapatite–gelatine nanocomposites is studied from both electron microscopy and atomistic simulation revealing ion impregnation effects on the growth mechanisms. Depending on the ionic species used for pre-treatment of the organic component dramatic changes of the mesoscopic structuring are observed.
