Generation of Multifunctional Inorganic Materials by Molecular Bionics

Living nature provides impressive evolution-optimised processes, which lead to complex-structured biogenic minerals. Their formation occurs in aqueous environments at ambient conditions. During these genetically determined biomineralisation processes biopolymeric templates that control the mineralisation and the structure formation of the inorganic components play a main role. However, biological evolution does not supply biomineralisation routes that directly lead to the generation of technically needed inorganic functional materials...
