Item description for Handbook of Biomineralization by Jeremy Pickett-Heaps...
This first comprehensive overview of the modern aspects of biomineralization represents life and materials science at its best: Bioinspired pathways are the hot topics in many disciplines and this holds especially true for biomineralization. Here, the editors -- all well-known members of associations and prestigious institutes -- have assembled an international team of renowned authors to provide first-hand research results. From the contents: VOLUME 1: BIOLOGICAL ASPECTS AND STRUCTURE FORMATION Silica-Hydrated Polysilicondioxide Iron Sulfides and Oxides Calcium Carbonates and Sulfates Calcium Phosphates
VOLUME 2: BIOMIMETIC AND BIOINSPIRED CHEMISTRY Biometic Model Systems in Biomineralization The Biomineral Approach to Bionics Bio-inspired Materials Synthesis Bio-supported Materials Chemistry Protein Cages as Size-contrained Reaction Vessels Encapsulation Imaging of Internal Nanostructures of Biominerals
VOLUME 3: MEDICAL AND CLINICAL ASPECTS Bone Teeth Pathological Calcifications
An interdisciplinary must-have account, for biochemists, bioinorganic chemists, lecturers in chemistry and biochemistry, materials scientists, biologists, and solid state physicists.
With forewords by Jeremy D. Pickett-Heaps, Stephen Mann, and Wolfgang Pompe.
