Abstract Scope Natural systems have evolved efficient strategies to synthesize composites from a limited selection of available materials that often exhibit exceptional mechanical properties that are frequently superior to those exhibited by engineering materials. These systems have accomplished this by establishing controlled synthesis and hierarchical assembly of nano- to micro-scaled building blocks. This requires organic that is used to transport mineral precursors to organic scaffolds, which not only precisely guide the formation and phase development of minerals, but also significantly improve the mechanical performance of otherwise brittle materials. Here, we investigate the formation of heavily crystallized radular teeth the chitons, a group of elongated mollusks that graze on hard substrates for algae. From the investigation of synthesis-structure-property relationships in these unique organisms, we are now developing and fabricating multifunctional engineering materials for energy conversion and storage. We discuss the crystallization of these materials and their subsequent impact on performance.
