Abstract

This review examines the use of self-assembly in the fabrication of ceramic mesostructures, emphasizing the use of amphiphilic surfactants and block copolymers. The association between this area of research and biomimetics is discussed, linking developments in synthetic self-assembly with biomineralization. The fabrication of hierarchical structures through the use of simultaneous processing is shown to be a necessary condition for applications of this new technology.
