AB - Lycopodium sporopollenin, a natural copolymer, shows exceptional stability underhigh hydrostatic pressures (10 GPa) as determined by in situ high pressuresynchrotron source FTIR spectroscopy. This stability is evaluated in terms of thecomponent compounds of the sporopollenin: p-coumaric acid, phloretic acid, ferulicacid, and palmitic and sebacic acids, which represent the additional n-acid and ndiacidcomponents. This high stability is attributed to interactions between thesecomponents, rather than the exceptional stability of any one molecular component.We propose a biomimetic solution for the creation of polymer materials that canwithstand high pressures for a multitude of uses in aeronautics, vascular autografts,ballistics and light-weight protective materials.
