Graphical Abstract:


We review recent research on nanostructure and biological physical structure models of spider silk. We introduce the biomimetic methods and bioinspired technology about how to fabricate the silk. We also impose great importance on wettability of natural and artificial spider silk according to recent development and potential functions in new promising fields.

Keywords: Bioinspired materials, micro- and nanostructure, orb-weaving spiders, silk bio-mimicry, spider silk, wettability.
