Abstract (English)

The aim of this thesis was to study three biomimetic systems that imply the mineralization of calcium carbonate, CaCO3, an important biogenic mineral used by nature as an inorganic component in exoskeletons and tissues of many mineralising organisms. These systems can serve as models for the complex and often hardly accessible natural archetypes with the possibility to reveal principles of the ...

Das Ziel dieser Arbeit war es, eine Studie an drei biomimetischen Systemen durchzuführen, denen die Mineralisation durch Calciumcarbonat, CaCO3, zugrunde liegt. Sein Vorkommen in Exoskeletten und anderen Gewebestrukturen vieler mineralienbildenden Organismen macht Calciumcarbonat zu einem wichtigen biogenen Material. Die hier verwendeten Modellsysteme können als Grundlage für die komplexen und ...
