Abstract: Spider silks exist in Nature as block copolymers, where hydrophobic and hydrophilic regions are linked forming natural biopolymers that organize into functional materials with exceptional properties. The resemblance of silk to synthetic polymer systems allowed the design and synthesis of silk-inspired block copolymers. The main goal was to provide fundamental insight into relationships b... read more
