The ability of silica to influence the mineralization of alkaline-earth carbonates is an outstanding example for the formation of biomimetic structures in the absence of any organic matter. Under suitable conditions, silica-stabilized carbonate nanocrystals can spontaneously self-assemble into hierarchical materials with complex morphologies, commonly referred to as “silica biomorphs”. However, ...
