A review. Crystn. in purely inorg. systems can yield smoothly curved forms that resemble those of biomaterials. Garcia-Ruiz et al. (2009) used video microscopy to provide insight into the formation of so-called "biomorphs" obtained by the pptn. from alk. media of nanocryst. BaCO3 (witherite) and amorphous SiO2 in a self-assembly process. Dynamic, pH-based coupling of equil. induces alternating ...
