Thermal Analysis, Structural Studies and Morphology of Spider Silk-like Block Copolymers.

Huang, Wenwen.

Abstract: Spider silk is a remarkable natural block copolymer, which offers a unique combination of low density, excellent mechanical properties, and thermal stability over a wide range of temperature, along with biocompatibility and biodegrability. The dragline silk of Nephila clavipes, is one of the most well understood and the best characterized spider silk, in which alanine-rich hydrophobic bl... read more
