Chiral polymer helices with shape identical to previously reported helical calcium carbonate morphologies

Glaab, Fabian ; Kellermeier, Matthias ; Kunz, Werner


Helixes with highly ordered substructures were found sporadically during pptn. of self-assembled SiO2-Ba carbonate biomorphs. Identical morphologies are already known and cited in the literature as helical calcite structures, formed by the influence of chiral phosphoserine copolypeptides. Yamamoto et al. claim that the handedness of the helixes can be tuned by the chirality of the amino acids ...
