Abstract: Thin films of calcium carbonate were deposited on the surfaces of synthetic substrates using a simple biomimetic pathway. The Nylon 66 fiber knit pre-adsorbed with acidic polymers was used as a template for the controlled deposition of CaCO 3 thin film. The presence of the soluble macromolecules on the fiber knit surface was characterized using ATR-FTIR spectroscopy. The characterization of the mineral films was carried out using scanning electron microscope (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and energy dispersive X-ray scattering (EDX) studies.
