Researchers in London have come up with a smart material made out of graphene oxide and a protein, that naturally forms into tubular shapes as it is 3D printed.
According to Nottingham, the mechanism of assembly enables the flexible, or disordered, regions of the protein to order and conform to the graphene oxide, generating a strong interaction between them. By controlling the way in which the two components are mixed, it is possible to guide their assembly at multiple size scales in the presence of cells and into complex robust structures.
