    Vijay Kumar Thakur is staff scientist in the School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at Washington State University, USA. He has published more than 90 research articles in SCI journals, 25 books, and 30 book chapters and holds one US patent. Some of his significant appointments include associate editor for Materials Express and advisory editor for SpringerPlus.   Biological materials have long been a source of both inspiration and envy to materials scientists. Wood, bone, nacre, silk, and muscle all show remarkable properties such as toughness, strength, and adaptability, while being produced from widely available feedstocks using methods that, by definition, are sustainable and environmentally friendly.

    A lot of protein-based composite materials are investigated for various applications, according to their need in different fields. Protein-based biocomposites are promising materials for biomedical applications because of their characteristics such as non-hazardous along with their native properties.   This study presents a practical approach to select plasticizers for proteins. It is a case study on thermoformed wheat gluten, considered here as a model protein, and it involved 30 plasticizer candidates. The approach consisted of selecting plasticisers (30 wt%) based on visual examination, rheological and molding behavior of the dough, and finally tensile data.

    Book Description. This volume presents the most up-to-date and detailed information available on protein-based biopolymer films and coatings. It provides a comprehensive overview of the design, technology, properties, functionality, and applications of biopolymer films and coatings (edible and inedible) from plant and animal proteins. Fibrous proteins such as silks have been used as textile and biomedical materials for decades due to their natural abundance, high flexibility, biocompatibility, and excellent mechanical properties. In addition, they also can avoid many problems related to traditional materials such as toxic chemical residues or brittleness. With the fast development of cutting-edge flexible materials and.

Introduction. Nature learned long ago how useful proteins are as a diverse set of building blocks to make materials with very diverse properties. Spider webs, egg whites, hair follicles, and skeletal muscles are all largely protein.

The book reviews the research history of soy protein, covers the latest developments in the field, and considers future Edition: 1. Part of the Macromolecular Systems — Materials Approach book series (MACROSYSTEMS) Abstract.

Proteins are one of three essential macromolecules in biological systems. Butler M.M., McGrath K.P. () Protein-Based Materials. In: Kaplan D.L. (eds) Biopolymers from Renewable Resources. Macromolecular Systems — Materials Approach. Springer. Protein-based materials hold special promise in that they can be tuned and altered in their chemical composition as well as their morphology.

The numerous ways in which the raw protein of these materials is processed allows researchers to manufacture a form of the protein that is best suited for a particular application.

Novel protein-based composite materials developed over the last decade or so (left), and new generations of protein composite materials recently developed or anticipated in the coming years (right).

As a unique feature of natural protein-based materials, modularity inspires bottom-up construction and hierarchical self-assembly across multiple length-scales, ultimately resulting in desirable materials with advanced mechanical and biological properties.

For recombinant production of these natural protein-based materials, robust modular gene. Protein-based plastics; Bio-based Plastics is a valuable resource for academic and industrial researchers who are interested in new materials, renewable resources, sustainability and polymerization technology.

It will also prove useful for advanced students interested in the development of bio-based products and materials, green and sustainable. Biobased aerogels: polysaccharide and protein-based materials Mavelil-Sam, Rubie, Pothan, Laly A., Thomas, Sabu Biobased Aerogels is the first book to cover aerogel research from a green perspective, using commentary and analysis from leading researchers working in the field.
