For biomineralization phenomena wherein diverse inorganic and organic ingredients are present in biological media, attributing biomaterial composition and structure to the chemistry of singular additives may not provide a holistic view of the underlying mechanisms. Therefore, in this review, we specifically address the consequences of physico-chemical non-ideality on mineral formation. Influences of different forms of non-ideality such as macromolecular crowding, confinement and liquid-like organic phases on mineral nucleation and crystallization in biological environments are presented. Novel prospects for the additive-controlled nucleation and crystallization are accessible from this biophysical view. In this manner, we show that non-ideal conditions significantly affect the form, structure and composition of biogenic and biomimetic minerals.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/29"/> <dc:contributor>Rao, Ashit</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/37766"/> <dc:creator>Rao, Ashit</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Cölfen, Helmut</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:issued>2016</dcterms:issued> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:title>Mineralization and non-ideality : on nature’s foundry</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Cölfen, Helmut</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
