Biomimetics: a route for the synthesis of novel materials

Ramachandrarao, P (1997) Biomimetics: a route for the synthesis of novel materials. In: Multi-facets of metallurgy: emerging trends. The Indian Institute of Metals, Jamshedpur, pp. 261-274.



The performance of smart / intelligent materials is dependent on the close interplay between structure, organisation and dynamics. These can be tailored to make advanced materials meet specific requirements. An attempt has been made to summarise recent advancements in understanding the synthesis of inorganic intelligent materials through such tailormade processes in Nature. The growth of the science of biomimetics, where endeavours are made to copy and learn from Nature, is traced.
