ACS Vision - Improving people's lives through the transforming power of chemistry
|Posted on April 6, 2015 at 8:45 PM|
Understanding the sophisticated functionalities offered by objects and processes found in nature will guide the design of materials with desirable properties to meet challenging applications. Zwitterionic materials, inspired by cell membranes and proteins, are excellent examples of bioinspired materials and have emerged as a new class of biocompatible materials. ICBZM 2015 aims to capture the excitement of this emerging field.
