During the last century synthetic polymers have gained increasing importance, since they reveal a large variety of material properties useful for numerous applications. However, synthetic polymers exhibit limitations regarding their functionality, especially in the area of biomedicine, where biocompatibility, -functionality, and -degradability are desired. Besides biodegradable synthetic polymers, naturally occurring biopolymers have been discovered, revealing the desired “biological” polymer properties in combination with “classic” ones. Here, we describe proteins as one class of biopolymers and discuss their impact on material applications. In order to highlight the attractiveness of proteins in material science, exemplarily bioengineered spider silk proteins are compared to synthetic polymers regarding their physical, chemical, and mechanical properties. In summary, biopolymeric proteins offer a fascinating potential as environmentally friendly materials for novel innovative products.
