Herein, we showed how a nacre-like hybrid material based on nanocellulose (NC) and CaCO<sub>3</sub> can be prepared via the sequential infiltration of polymer-stabilised CaCO<sub>3</sub> liquid precursors into layers of pre-deposited NC films. Layer-by-layer assembly of the NC films followed by controlled spreading and infiltration with liquid CaCO<sub>3</sub> precursors generated a lamellar material with an architecture and iridescent appearance similar to those of nacre. The wettability of the NC films towards the liquid CaCO<sub>3</sub> precursors was controlled by hydroxyl and carboxyl functionalization of the NC fibrils and the addition of magnesium ions. The combination of a high stiffness and plasticity of the nacre-like NC/CaCO<sub>3</sub> hybrid materials show that excellent mechanical properties can be obtained employing a fibrillar organic constituent that is relatively hard. The fabrication of a nacre-like hybrid material via an aqueous route of assembly and infiltration processing demonstrates how a sustainable composite material with outstanding properties can be produced using the most abundant biopolymer and biomineral on earth. 2017-02-22T15:30:24Z Salazar-Alvarez, Germán Salazar-Alvarez, Germán Durak, Grazyna Malgorzata eng Sort, Jordi Fornell, Jordina 2017 Bergström, Lennart Schütz, Christina Gebauer, Denis Fornell, Jordina
