Abstract

Biomimetic chemistry offers new approaches to supramolecular materials synthesis and assembly. We have demonstrated that an assembled viral protein cage, comprising an organic core-shell structure, can be used as a template for the size constrained synthesis of Fe(2)O(3). Particle nucleation is directed by the inner scaffold protein layer, while the size constraints are determined by the outer capsid layer.
