Inorganic solid state phases are as integral to organisms as aqueous phase chemical reactions. Over 60 different biologically produced minerals are presently known.

In Iron Biomineralization three general articles regarding iron biominerals, biominerals and homeostasis, and crystallochemical control of iron oxide biomineralization introduce useful concepts and information which will be developed in most of the following contributions. The section Biological Iron Oxides contains many reports about magnetotactic bacteria and iron biomineralization processes in bacteria and invertebrates.

Iron biominerals are formed by a broad host of organisms, in which they serve various functions. For example, iron oxides formed by organisms serve for strengthening of tissues1 and hardening of teeth. 2 Iron biominerals are also associated with iron overload diseases and involved in intracellular iron storage and detoxication and sensing of magnetic elds,3-6 and crystals of magnetic iron minerals have been found even in the human brain. 1) Frankel, R.

Iron biominerals are known to occur in many organisms. This is due, perhaps, to the importance of iron in many metabolic processes. The discovery of a very simple magnetotactic response in a certain species of bacteria is very interesting and important 12. Iron Biominerals, Frankel, R. Eds; Plenum: New York, 1991, pp 435. 13.

Proceedings of the first Iron Biominerals Conference held July 1989, at the U. of New Hampshire. Biochemists, microbiologists, inorganic chemists, biophysicists, and geophysicists discuss potential applications of iron biominerals in medicine, catalysis, and electronics as well as insights into plan
