Green Chemistry from the Mussel FootThe chemical industry can learn a lot from the common mussel. Not only is the mollusk’s mother of pearl remarkably tough, but the byssal threads with which it clings to the seafloor are also particularly tear-resistant, and their ends adhere under water better than any other material. Furthermore, the way in which the mussel spins the complex threads in its foot could serve as a blueprint for an environmentally friendly production process for synthetic composite materials.
