Synthesis of inorganic materials with complex form

Abstract

Recent developments in inorganic materials chemistry suggest that concepts such as morphogenesis, replication, self-organization and metamorphosis could be useful for devising new synthetic strategies. Inorganic materials with complex form can be chemically synthesized by pattern replication of self-organized organic assemblies, such as micelles, vesicles and foams.
