Abstract Biological materials have excellent mechanical properties due to their organized structures from nano- to macro-scale. Artificial manufacture of materials with anisotropic microstructures still remains challenging. We described a stress-induced method to fabricate anisotropic alginate fibers. Organic-inorganic composite fibers were obtained by incorporating aligned hydroxyapatite (HAP) nanowires into the alginate fiber. Detailed structural characterization revealed the bone-like structu...

Tooth enamel is composed of arrayed fluorapatite (FAP) or hydroxyapatite nanorods modified with Mg-rich amorphous layers. Although it is known that Mg2+ plays an important role in the formation of enamel, there is limited research on the regulatory role of Mg2+ in the synthesis of enamel-like materials. Therefore, we focus on the regulatory behavior of Mg2+ in the fabrication of biomimetic mineralized enamel-like structural materials. In the present study, we adopt a bioprocess-inspired room-tem...

Abstract As one of the most delicate bioprocesses in nature, biosilicification is closely related to biosilica with various morphologies, and has provided abundant inspiration to materials synthesis. In the present study, to explore the biosilica formation process and fabricate silica with an exquisite microstructure for lithium-ion battery (LIB) electrodes, a bacterial phage (M13) is used as a biotemplate to synthesize silica with diverse morphologies: cylinders, hexagonal prisms, assemblies of...

Collagen fibrils present periodic structures, which provide space for intrafibrillar growth of oriented hydroxyapatite nanocrystals in bone and contribute to the good mechanical properties of bone. However, there are not many reports focused on bioprocess-inspired synthesis of non-native inorganic materials inside collagen fibrils and detailed forming processes of crystals inside collagen fibrils remain poorly understood. Herein, the rapid intrafibrillar mineralization of calcium fluoride nanocr...

Bioinspired hydrogels have promising prospects in applications such as wearable devices, human health monitoring equipment, and soft robots due to their multifunctional sensing properties resembling natural skin. However, the preparation of intelligent hydrogels that provide feedback on multiple electronic signals simultaneously, such as human skin receptors, when stimulated by external contact pressure remains a substantial challenge. In this study, we designed a bioinspired hydrogel with multi...

Abstract This study presents an innovative surface-diffusion mechanism for the growth of substrate-free and catalyst-free boron nitride nanosheets (BNNSs) by annealing an ammonium borate hydroxide hydrate precursor in a NH3 chemical vapor deposition system. At elevated temperatures, part of NH4B5O8 slowly decomposes and forms B2O3, and flowing NH3 gradually diffuses to the B2O3 surface to form vertically aligned BNNSs. The lateral dimension and crystallinity of the BNNSs increase, while their th...

Inspired from the occlusion of macromolecules in mineral crystals during the biomineralization process, the occlusion mechanism of functional guest species into a host matrix is gradually revealed in artificial systems. However, the guest species within calcite crystals are limited to the nanometer scale. Herein, using amorphous calcium carbonate (ACC) as a precursor and taking advantage of the crystallization of vaterite by the attachment of ACC nanoparticles, micrometer-sized modified Escheric...

Mesoporous silica particles of controlled size and shape are potentially beneficial for many applications, but their usage may be limited by the complex procedure of fabrication. Biotemplating provides a facile approach to synthesize materials with desired shapes. Herein, a bioinspired design principle is adopted through displaying silaffin-derived 5R5 proteins on the surface of Escherichia coli by genetic manipulations. The genetically modified Escherichia coli provides a three-dimensional temp...
