Nanoscale lego construction inspired by biominerals

Abstract:
Dr. Yuya Oaki, first author, and Prof. Hiroaki Imai from the Department of Applied Chemistry at Keio University in Japan, published a recent paper on nanoscale architectures in biominerals and their biomimetics that will lead to the improved understanding of biomineralization and the further development of materials science. The paper, titled "Bridged Nanocrystals in Biominerals and Their Biomimetics: Classical Yet Modern Crystal Growth on the Nanoscale" appeared in the July 3, 2006 online edition of Advanced Functional Materials.
