Biomoléculas en nanotecnología

José A. D. L. C. Rodríguez Galván


Las propiedades de reconocimiento molecular y autoensamble intrínseco de las biomoléculas han fascinado a la nanotecnología. Su incursión está revolucionando la forma de fabricar nanomateriales. En este trabajo revisa- mos un número de publicaciones que emplean biomoléculas en la fabricación de Nanomateriales.

Palabras clave

nanotecnología; biomoléculas; nanomateriales
