Bio-inspired synthesis of polymer – inorganic nanocomposite materials in mild aqueous systems

  title={Bio-inspired synthesis of polymer – inorganic nanocomposite materials in mild aqueous systems},
  author={Ayae Sugawara-Narutaki},
It is increasingly important that we learn how to fabricate materials in environmentally friendly ways using common resources that are abundant in nature. Biomineralization, the process by which living organisms create a variety of sophisticated composites, such as bone and shell, is an ideal model for such fabrication. This article reviews recent progress toward the synthesis of polymer–inorganic composite materials inspired by biomineralization. In particular, three reaction systems are… CONTINUE READING
