This new volume promotes the use of peptides and polyamino acids in a variety of settings. Its 25 chapters focus on examples from the mineralization sciences; the power and sophistication of biotechnology as applied to peptides, including growth substances, antioxidants, and antifreezes; problems of adhesion, corrosion, and dispersion; how organisms regulate silica deposition; and how silica deposits are dealt with in industrial settings. The authors, representing both academia and industry, focus on chemistry and materials aspects of their research. In addition, they provide discussions of how their specific compound or property was discovered, as well as explanations of current or potential applications.
