Biological chitin-based tools and sensors

Biological chitin-based tools and sensors

After cellulose chitin is the second most abundant natural biomacromolecule. It forms all arthropod cuticles, the cell walls of fungi and also is produced by molluscs, various protozoans and algae. We focus on the arthropod cuticle, in which α-chitin crystalline nano-fibrils embedded in a protein matrix are the basic building unit of the material.
