Bionanoparticles and hybrid materials: tailored structural properties, self-assembly, materials and developments in the field

Author affiliations

Abstract

We discuss new developments with respect to bionanoparticles as well as bionanoparticle hybrid systems and their use in composite materials. The recognition of the particle character and behavior of proteins and viral particles has a major impact on the development of novel nanoparticle systems and adds new functions and possibilities. The types of particles discussed in this review will give access to new functional materials, not only in medical- and biotechnological applications but also in electronic devices and possibly membrane-technology. Though, many systems have been developed, still more is to be discovered and significant advances are expected if more (sub-) disciplines are combined.
