Biological synthesis of functional nanomaterials
In nature, biological systems provide an ideal mesoscale transformation when synthesizing
mesocrystal biominerals, such as bone, teeth, shells, sea urchin spikes, and aragonite tablets
in nacre. This is a well-known biomineralization process, which is highly sophisticated in terms
of its adaptation to function. Inspired by nature, biological synthesis of functional nanomaterial
with precise control ability has attracted extensive attention both in academia and industry in
My reserch interest focuses on the biological synthesis of functional nanomaterials
(such as noble metal, metal oxide/sulfide) with kinds of biomolecules (protein, peptide, extraction
from plants, etc.) as bio-templates for the various applications.
