  • Perhpas the first book-length treatment devoted soley to a promising group of materials: morphogenetic materials
  • Introduces morphogenetic fabrication, which directly incorporates the bio-composition of a natural species into fabricated functional materials
  • Discusses bio-inspired strategies integrating biotemplates, biomineralization, and biomimesis in nature

Morphology Genetic Materials Templated from Nature Species provides a comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of research on bio-inspired functional materials including materials science and engineering aspects of the fabrication, properties, and applications. The book discusses bio-inspired strategies integrating biotemplate, biomineralizaion, and biomimesis in nature, which are adopted to fabricate functional materials with hierarchical bio-architectures and interrelated outstanding performances, as well as valuable applications in photoelectricity, photonics, photocatalysis, chemical detection, bio-imaging, and photoelectron transfer components/devices.

The book is intended for researchers and graduate students in the fields of materials science, chemistry, nanotechnology, semiconductor, biotechnology, environmental engineering, etc.

 Prof. Dr. Di Zhang is currently a professor at the School of Materials Science and Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, and the director of the State Key Laboratory of Metal Matrix Composites, China.
