Abstract

Pearl shells, which are yielded as a waste during jewel pearl culture process at Uwajima sea in Ehime prefecture, Japan, are micro-/nanostructured composite materials alternatively consisting of organic and inorganic CaCO3 layers with nanothicknesses. Micro-/nanosized pearl particles are candidates for Ca nutrients and hydroxyapatite (HAp) formation. Iron oxide nanocubes with surfactant are self-assembled into closed packing structures. The integrated structure of thermal-imprinted glass templates with functional ...
