Kazuki Murai, Prof. Masahiro Higuchi, Tatsuya Kuno and Dr. Katsuya Kato Silica Mineralization by a Peptide Template Having a High Charge Relay Effect ChemPlusChem 79
In charge: The influence of the charge relay effects of peptide organic templates on silica mineralization has been investigated. β-Sheet-type peptide shows higher catalytic activity toward the condensation of trimethylsilanol than random-coil peptide (see figure). Silica mineralized on the Val-His-Val-Glu-Val-Ser (VHVEVS) peptide template forms a flat surface, which is affected by the peptide morphology.
