As part of their coverage of the 2016 American Chemical Society Meeting in San Diego, Chemical & Engineering News' Mitch Jacoby wrote about the research presented by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's Jim De Yoreo. The article on how the biomineral calcite forms. The research, published in Nature Communications, reveals how soft clumps of biological matter get into calcium carbonate crystals and endow them with remarkable strength. The research provides insight into the formation of natural minerals will help scientists develop new materials for a sustainable energy future.
