COVER STORY
Neo-Biomimetic Materials
gNeo-Biomimetic Materialsh are appealing materials that show highly developed bio-mimicking functions taking inspiration from nature. European researchers are leaders in this attractive field. This development establishes a new trans-disciplinary scientific field by the formation of a human network among biologists and materials scientists. Industrial researchers also expect biomimetics to bring a green product innovation process based on new developments in material design and production technology. Biomimetic basic research and industrial applications on polymer materials in Japan are featured in this issue.
