Shirly Borukhin, Leonid Bloch, Tzvia Radlauer, Adrian H. Hill, Andrew N. Fitch and Boaz Pokroy Screening the Incorporation of Amino Acids into an Inorganic Crystalline Host: the Case of Calcite Advanced Functional Materials 22
Identification of the amino acids that become incorporated into a calcite inorganic crystal host is studied systematically by growing calcite in the presence of the twenty common amino acids. Synchrotron high-resolution powder diffraction and analytical chemistry is performed to unravel this important question. The new insights gained are expected to have an impact on biomineralization and on hybrid materials and interfaces in general.
