A new, simple approach to confer permanent antimicrobial properties to hydroxylated surfaces by surface functionalization.


PMID 18283346

Abstract

A new, simple method to obtain ultrathin polycationic monolayers on hydroxylated surfaces is described which uses a bifunctional copolymer comprising a reactive part (trimethoxysilane) and positive charges (quaternary ammonium salts) to confer antimicrobial properties.
