Putrescine homologues control silica morphogenesis by electrostatic interactions and the hydrophobic effect

Author affiliations

Abstract

A systematic model study on the role(s) of putrescine homologues on silicification is presented and it is proposed that electrostatic forces between additive and silicic acid, and the hydrophobic behaviour of the additives are both important in silicification.
