Biomimetics

A Molecular Perspective

Series:De Gruyter Textbook

    • Truly "connecting the dots" between biology and biological processes and chemistry, materials and engineering.

    • Biomimetics - an exciting and rapidly expanding interdisciplinary field – yet no comprehensive textbook on the market.

    • Starts from the principles of this rather new approach and develops promising applications in a methodological and instructive manner.

    • Offering numerous examples, the book describes artificial and synthetic assemblies mimicking biological and living systems.

    Aims and Scope

    Biological systems have always inspired mankind in the creation of new systems and technologies. In recent years the interface between the biological and non-biological worlds appears increasingly blurred due to significant advances both in our understanding of biological phenomena, as well as the development of sophisticated means to manipulate molecular systems for varied applications. Biomimetics as a distinct discipline shows how biology and biological processes are manifested in diverse aspects of chemistry, physics and engineering. This book aims to methodically describe artificial and synthetic assemblies mimicking biological and living systems - from biomaterials to drug discovery to microelectronics and computer sciences.
