Bioinspired Inorganic Materials: Structure and Function Editor: Simon R Hall

About this book

The development of novel materials whose structure, properties or function are inspired by nature or living matter is a wide and dynamically evolving field. There is virtually no field of scientific endeavour that has not felt the touch of the ‘bioinspired’ ethos. Bioinspired Inorganic Materials provides an up-to-date review of the research, with some historical context. The emphasis throughout is on how bioinspiration is being used for cutting-edge applications. Chapters in the book cover big breakthroughs in bioinspiration for energy applications, surface technology, metamaterials and ceramics for regenerative medicine. Edited and written by world-renowned scientists, this book will provide a comprehensive introduction for advanced undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers wishing to learn about the topic.
