Biomimetic materials collection – free until 23rd August

Biomaterials ScienceIf you’re a regular visitor to the Biomaterials Science blog you’ve probably already seen last weeks ‘Call for Papers on Biomimetic Materials’. Hopefully we’ll be able to highlight some interesting Biomaterials Science articles on this area soon– but in the meantime here are a few articles from Journal of Materials Chemistry and Soft Matter which I hope you’ll enjoy. They’re all free to read until 23rd August.
