Silicification in biological systems

Abstract:

This thesis is concerned with the formation and structure of silicified deposits in biology. The major system studied is silicified macrohairs from the lemma of the grass Phalaris canariensis L.. The macrohairs consist of silica and polysaccharides. Chemical and structural studies on the mineral phase utilised electron microscopy (transmission (TEM), scanning (SEM) and ultra high resolution (HRTEM)), energy disoersive X-ray analysis (EDXA), solid state nuclear magnetic resonance ( ᷣ⁹ Si nm...
