About this book

This book focuses on the use of bio-inspired and biomimetic methods for the fabrication and activation of nanomaterials. This includes studies concerning the binding of the biomolecules to the surface of inorganic structures, structure/function relationships of the final materials and extensive discussions on the final applications of such biomimetic materials in unique applications including energy harvesting/storage, biomedical diagnostics and materials assembly.

Reviews

“The book is a true multidisciplinary one, covering chemistry, physics, surface science, structural and molecular biology, genetics, materials science, computational modelling and informatics. … Each chapter has a very reach bibliography as well as clear and helpful illustrations further contributing to this book which, as a whole, is a valuable scientific product.” (Ioan I. Ardelean, Bulletin of Micro and Nanoelectrotechnologies, Vol. 6 (1-2), 2015)
