Keratin Nanomaterials and Biomaterials Made From Keratin Nanomaterials

Description:
Keratin nanomaterials are a new chemical entity that can be used to make biomaterials and other materials. They have a unique ability for self-assembly and spontaneous form highly ordered material structures with novel mechanical, chemical, and biological characteristics. They have advantages over conventional biomacromolecules in that keratin nanomaterials have a different chemical composition and elicit different responses when in contact with cells and tissues.
