Abstract: Nature is a master of preparative chemistry and there is currently considerable interest in copying Nature in the design and synthesis of advanced materials – biomimetic supramolecular chemistry. In the article three examples of such procedures are given. The first example relates to ordered mesoporous materials, which are of interest for catalysis. The approach taken to synthesize the porous materials resembles the way some marine organisms, e.g. diatoms, build porous structures. The second exa... more
