Teeth, bones, kidney stones, and skeletons of algae, mussels, and grasses: all examples of biomineralization. Whole mountains owe their existence to the ability of organisms to mineralize in their cells inorganic compounds from solutions. Those minerals made by organisms are used for various purposes. Some of these minerals are magnetic and therefore of interest to nanotechnology. Thus there is a rapidly growing number of research groups and journals worldwide dealing with biomineralization. This book provides a much--needed up--to--date account of the important developments in biomineralization, focusing on investigations of unicellular organisms. An international and interdisciplinary team of authors, under the direction of a leading expert in the field, presents research results from first--hand experience as well as general information and a full list of references. Specific applications, such as the use of biominerals as contrast agents in cancer therapy, the templated crystallization of colloids, and in nanotechnology are highlights of this book.

This title takes an interdisciplinary approach to the central role of solubility in pathological biomineralisation, ranging from traditional thermodynamics and kinetics to unusual concepts such as the PILP process. The scientific background and expertise of the contributors, ranges accordingly from solubility modelling and database development, renal stone and bone implant research, Mossbauer spectroscopy and structural chemistry to biochemistry and crystallisation. The chapters all have a quantitative, physico-chemical component rather than giving purely phenomenological descriptions. The contributors deal with aspects and concepts that have not previously been common in the study of pathological biomineralisation processes.

What does it mean to be at the forefront of a characterization technique? Novel implementation and research, finding new ways to visualize composites, and new techniques all play a role. Yet with the myriad of advances in the field, keeping up with new and advanced techniques, often from many different areas, has become a challenge. Biomineralization Sourcebook: Characterization of Biominerals and Biomimetic Materials emphasizes the interplay between multiple techniques at their current frontiers and explores how such studies may be carried out. The book addresses atomic and molecular structure: how it is described, detected, and assessed for importance. It then highlights additional measurements especially well-suited to looking at two- and three-dimensional systems with heterogeneous, if not hierarchical, structure. These systems enable particular aspects of biominerals and biomimetic models to be scrutinized. The text presents state-of-the-art methods to assess properties of the composite, and represents current approaches and aspirations to measuring entire biological working structures while retaining as much fine-grained biophysical information as possible. In all these chapters, authors showcase discoveries from their own programs. Along the way, the book takes you on a tour from microscopy's eighteenth century roots, to the recent literature and diverse research programs of the contributing investigators, to the multi-million dollar National Laboratory facilities that all play their roles to illuminate the ever-fascinating biominerals. A snapshot of the state of the art in a spectrum of experimental techniques applied to a common interdisciplinary goal, where the ability to use the more advanced techniques often requires funding for collaboration and travel, the book will deepen the appreciation for the massive interdisciplinary effort underway, educate researchers across the field, and motivate new collaborations.

Fossils are essential to the reconstruction of the evolution of life and episodes in Earth history. Knowledge of biomineralization - the processes associated with the formation of mineralized biological structures - is essential to properly evaluate data derived from fossils. This book emphasizes skeletal formation and fossilization in a geologic framework in order to understand evolution, relationships between fossil groups, and the use of biomineral materials as geochemical proxies for understanding ancient oceans and climates. The focus is on shells and skeletons of calcareous organisms, and the book explores the fine structures and mode of growth of the characteristic crystalline units, taking advantage of most recent physical methodological advances. The book is richly illustrated and will be of great interest to advanced students and researchers in paleontology, Earth history, evolution, sedimentology, geochemistry, and materials science.

This first comprehensive overview of the modern aspects of biomineralization represents life and materials science at its best: Bioinspired pathways are the hot topics in many disciplines and this holds especially true for biomineralization. Here, the editor has assembled an international team of renowned authors to provide first-hand research results. This first of three volumes deals with the biology of biominerals structure formation, with sections on silica-hydrated polysilicondioxide, iron sulfides and oxides, calcium carbonates and sulfates, as well as calcium phosphates. An interdisciplinary must-have account, for biochemists, bioinorganic chemists, lecturers in chemistry and biochemistry, materials scientists, biologists, and solid state physicists.

This first comprehensive overview of the modern aspects of biomineralization represents life and materials science at its best: Bioinspired pathways are the hot topics in many disciplines and this holds especially true for biomineralization. Here, the editors -- all well-known members of associations and prestigious institutes -- have assembled an international team of renowned authors to provide first-hand research results. From the contents: VOLUME 1: BIOLOGICAL ASPECTS AND STRUCTURE FORMATION Silica-Hydrated Polysilicondioxide Iron Sulfides and Oxides Calcium Carbonates and Sulfates Calcium Phosphates VOLUME 2: BIOMIMETIC AND BIOINSPIRED CHEMISTRY Biometic Model Systems in Biomineralization The Biomineral Approach to Bionics Bio-inspired Materials Synthesis Bio-supported Materials Chemistry Protein Cages as Size-contrained Reaction Vessels Encapsulation Imaging of Internal Nanostructures of Biominerals VOLUME 3: MEDICAL AND CLINICAL ASPECTS Bone Teeth Pathological Calcifications An interdisciplinary must-have account, for biochemists, bioinorganic chemists, lecturers in chemistry and biochemistry, materials scientists, biologists, and solid state physicists. With forewords by Jeremy D. Pickett-Heaps, Stephen Mann, and Wolfgang Pompe.

A large variety of organisms - from bacteria to man - form minerals. Skeletons, teeth, spicules, spines, shells, darts, and granules are all mineral-containing tissues. Why, where, and how these minerals form are the central questions addressed in this book. These questions have become important in many fields. Preserved fossils are used to interpret ancient climates, changes in chemical composition of the oceans, or to date geological and archaeological deposits and artefacts. Materials scientists investigate mineralized tissues to try to determine the design principles used by organisms to form strong materials, and many medical problems are associated with normal and pathological mineralization. Heinz Lowenstam, the pioneering researcher in biomineralization, and his former student Stephen Weiner discuss the basic principles of mineral formation by organisms, and compare the various mineralization processes. Reference tables list all known cases in which organisms form minerals.

The current status of biomineralization research not only in the areas of medical and dental sciences, but also in biology, paleontology, mineralogy, oceanography, chemistry, and crystallography as presented at the 6th International Symposium on Biomineralization held in Odawara, Japan, on October 8-12, 1990, is discussed in this volume. Contributions cover such research areas as the origin and evolution of biomineralization, mechanisms of mineralization, interactions between cells, organic matrix and minerals, trace element accumulation in highly mineralized tissues, and the interaction between biomineralization and geological and oceanographical environment.
