    Underneath the unique and beautiful structures of biominerals there is always the presence of organic molecules that tightly interact with the developing inorganic nuclei/crystal directing its growth and assembly towards ...
  • Dissolving hydroxyolite: a DNA molecule into its hydroxyapatite mold 

    Bertran Cànovas, Òscar; Revilla López, Guillermo; Casanovas Salas, Jordi; Valle Mendoza, Luis Javier del; Turón Dols, Pau; Puiggalí Bellalta, Jordi; Alemán Llansó, Carlos (2016-04-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    In spite of the clinical importance of hydroxyapatite (HAp), the mechanism that controls its dissolution in acidic environments remains unclear. Knowledge of such a process is highly desirable to provide better understanding ...
