Biomimicry of Limpet Teeth with Hybrid Colloidal Liquid Crystals: Mechanical Enhancement by Structural Orderliness from Self-Assembly

By Hongbo Zhao and others
The teeth of limpets, consisting of orderly aligned hard goethite (iron oxyhydroxides) nanocrystals and flexible chitin microfibers, are one of the hardest and stiffest biomaterials found in nature. However, the replication of their composition and ordered microstructures to artificial biomimetic materials remains a challenge. Here, we fabricated large-sized limpet tooth... Show more
