In response to increasing energy concerns, new materials are required that efficiently use and/or produce energy for a variety of applications. One specific and important area would be for catalytic applications that typically are energy intensive, but extremely important. In this regard, biomimetic methods have recently been studied for such reactivity, where the effects of the biointerface on the catalytic functionality have begun to be examined. This chapter focuses on these materials, typically prepared with peptides and viral templates, for a selection of important catalytic processes.
