Abstract Scope The synthesis of materials with complex structures and well-defined properties is a central focus of the ‘Directed assembly of extended structures with targeted properties’ grand challenge, given their importance to economic growth and role in addressing key societal challenges. In materials produced by nature, I.e. biominerals: proteins, lipids and carbohydrates act as agents to control both formation and the physio chemical properties of the composite materials that result. Taking inspiration from nature we extend the ideas of molecular recognition, ads/desorption to the formation of commercially relevant materials. Using examples of MOFS and composites of ZnO and gold we showcase how peptides can be used to tailor the structures formed, In all our studies we use a wide range of experimental techniques to characterise our (bio) materials and measure molecular behaviour at interfaces. The research presented will include new methods being developed specifically to probe such interactions.
