Abstract - Summary 
(short description):
Carbonated apatite-(CaF)-gelatine nanocomposites were grown by the double-diffusion technique within a gelatine gel. The composite aggregates grown within so-called Liesegang bands were characterized by XRD, chemical analysis, FT-IR-spectroscopy, Raman-spectroscopy, TG/DTA/MS, SEM and TEM. The inner structure and even the composition of our biomimetic nanocomposites are closely related to the hard tissues of some recent and ancient organism. Thus our biomimetic system is perfectly suited for obtain information on process of self-organization of organic-inorganic nanocomposites and may be also helps to deeper understand the process of mineralization of biological hard tissues.
