S imple biominerals are composed of complex structures, which often have precise architectural order over several length scales. TIlis amazing architecture contributes to their superior strength and toughness, allowing them to outperform synthetic materials. Biominerals rely heavily on their biological constituents, such as biomacromolecules, for' regulation of mineralization. Pathological mineralization leads to the formation of undesired biominerals such as kidney stones, artherosclerosis and… CONTINUE READING
