BACKGROUND Peptides are promising compounds for use in inorganic or organic-inorganic hybrid syntheses (mineralization) and offer several advantages over proteins. Meanwhile, silica-based nanomaterials have been extensively investigated for many years because of their potential application in a diverse range of technologies, including catalysis, sensing, separation, enzyme immobilization, and gene and drug delivery. Considerable progress has been made over the past decade in understanding the… CONTINUE READING
