Abstract

Silk, seen as a material, is a fiber made from silkworm cocoons and spiders. They have standard structural components and hierarchical structures. Different manufacturing techniques allow obtaining silk in films, fibers, hydrogels, microspheres, and sponges. We can tune the properties through the structure of secondary proteins. The paper explores the application in biomedical, optics, and electronic fields by analyzing the technological trend.
