ABSTRACT

Continuous self-assembled growth of both the organic and inorganic components of materials with nacre-like structure is achieved upon mineralisation of chitin and chitosan scaffolds using a combined soaking method and the inclusion of poly(acrylic acid) and chitosan oligomers as additives.
