Nature is Alive with Chemistry

In this pre-recorded webinar available on demand, Biomimicry 3.8 chemist Mark Dorfman unpacks the complexity of chemical science as he takes us on an illuminating tour of nature’s chemistry-based adaptations, including a deep dive into how we can “use life-friendly chemistry”–one of Life’s Principles that represent the main strategies and deep design lessons Life has evolved over 3.8 billion years in order to survive and thrive.

Lightweighting like nature: A futuristic concept no longer

On the heels of our webinar series on Lightweighting Inspired by Nature with Janine Benyus, Nature Nanotechnology has just published new findings on how we might mimic nature’s ability to build lightweight materials with hierarchical nano-, micro-, and macro-structures that self assemble. Lightweighting like nature is a futuristic concept, but these new findings shed new light on how it will be possible.
