Epitaxy driven interactions at the organic–inorganic interface during biomimetic growth of calcium oxalate

Author affiliations

Abstract

During oriented biomimetic crystallization of calcium oxalate monohydrate under floating fatty acid monolayers, the ([1 with combining macron]01) surface structure is initially compressed and epitaxial with the monolayer lattice. The surface subsequently relaxes to the bulk structure and the monolayer expands, reestablishing a lattice match. These interactions were observed in situ using synchrotron X-ray diffraction.
