    • pH-Dependent Schemes of Calcium Carbonate Formation in the Presence of Alginates 

      Rao, Ashit; Fernández, María S.; Berg, John K.; Sánchez, Marianela; Drechsler, Markus; Neira Carrillo, Andrónico; Arias Bautista, José; Gebauer, Denis; Coelfen, Helmut (AMER CHEMICAL SOC, 2016)
      From recent studies on bone and shell formation, the importance of polysaccharides in biomineralization processes is gradually being recognized. Through ion-complexation and self-assembly properties, such macromolecules ...
    • Retrosynthesis of CaCO3 via amorphous precursor particles using gastroliths of the Red Claw lobster (Cherax quadricarinatus) 

      Neira Carrillo, Andrónico; Fernández Garay, María Soledad; Poblete Hevia, Gonzalo Andrés; Arias Bautista, José Luis; Gebauer, Denis; Coelfen, Helmut (Elsevier, 2017)
      Gastroliths are highly calcified structures formed in the cardiac stomach wall of crustaceans for the temporary storage of amorphous CaCO3 (ACC). The gastrolithic ACC is stabilized by the presence of biomolecules, and ...
    • Templated CaCO3 Crystallization by Submicrometer and Nanosized Fibers 

      Neira Carrillo, Andrónico; Gentsch, Rafael; Boerner, Hans G.; Acevedo, Diego Fernando; Barbero, César A.; Coelfen, Helmut (2016)
      Electrospun submicrometer-sized poly(e-caprolactone) (PCL) meshes and nanosized multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were used as a template for preparing porous and interconnected inorganic organic hybrid materials ...
