Kunz, Werner ; Kellermeier, Matthias


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.
