Reactor core: Hybrid core–shell urease–ZnO nanostructures have been synthesized (see picture). The crystallization takes place under mild biological conditions, thus ensuring its easy implementation in other room-temperature syntheses of oxide semiconductor materials.
- crystalline ZnO nanoshells
- room temperature
- biomimetic synthesis
- crystal growth
