Functionalized nanoparticles mimic enzyme found in sponge

Abstract:
Researchers at the University of California, Santa Barbara, US, have synthesized a nanostructure that can catalyze the formation of silica at low temperatures and neutral pH. To achieve this, the team copied the polysiloxane-synthesizing enzyme found in the orange puffball sponge Tethya aurantia, which lives in seawater.
