Silk Polymers: Materials Science and Biotechnology, Volume 544
American Chemical Society, 1994 - Technology & Engineering - 370 pages
Characterizes the mechanical and molecular structure of silks with an emphasis on development and application of high-performance and composite materials. Discusses the synthesis of native and synthetic silks and silk-like materials, with particular focus on genetic encoding and engineering. Examines the structure-property relationship of silks and silk-like materials. Serves as an aid in the design of polymers targeted for specific functions.
