Bioinspired supramolecular materials : decontaminations and biomedical applications}

The presence in the environment of "nano-contaminants" from different sources (nanotechnologies, nanomedicine, industries, automobiles, cosmetics etc) raises a major societal concern due to possible harmful effects on biological systems. The use of filtration systems for the treatment of contaminated water remains very limited in terms of efficiency. One of the current challenges in this area remains the development of new solutions and / or approaches leading to simple and effective decontamination. To this end, new bio-inspired materials are promising options. Indeed, one of the oldest animals on Earth, the jellyfish [> 500 My] could help us solve the problem of contamination with nanoparticles.

In this contribution, we will present :

i) bioaccumulation of nanoparticles by natural materials (mucus secreted by jellyfish, etc),

ii) biomimetic approaches that could help us design decontamination systems for nanoparticles,

iii) examples of bioinspired synthetic materials for biomedical applications.
