1. Name and description of organism:
What is(are) the organism(s) identified as the inspiration for the work; write 1 short sentence describing the organism.
2. Aspects suitable for biomimicry; description of usefulness of aspect to the organism; possible applications:
What aspects of the organism are suitable for biomimicry (explain all aspects, not just the one in the papers)? How do these aspects serve the organism? What are the potential applications of these properties of the organism?
3. Methods:
What methods were used to measure properties and/or create a mimic (and methods to characterize the mimic), etc.? e.g. , say AFM was used to … There is no need to report results here.
a. Characterization of organism/natural material (if attempted – but look also in references)
b. Fabrication of replica (if attempted)
c. Characterization of replica (if attempted)
4. Briefly describe stage of development (state of art/limitations, etc.):
What were the results of the study? What has been learned since? If no mimic has been produced by anyone, say so – is there a reason it hasn’t been done? Is something commercially available? If not, is there a reason it is not commercially available? Be quantitative – if they make a mimic, how does it compare to the natural material? Did they accomplish what they set out to do? Will the mimic really work for the specified application? What are the stated limitations? What other limitations can you think of? This should be the longest section. You should show that you’ve read associated scientific literature and understand the concepts and think critically about them.
5. Nanoscale aspect:
Is it nano? If not, why?; If yes, what? Consider the original organism and the mimic. State scale. Be quantitative.
