Bioinspired Anti-fouling Coating on Hydrophobic Surfaces
MetadataShow full item record
Anti-biofouling is very important in many applications ranging from marine coatings to biomedical devices. The poor bio-compatibility of medical devices with human body causes undesired effects. Therefore, to achieve long-term stability of implanted medical devices the task is to modify the surfaces of medical devices so as to resist protein and make them compatible. In this thesis, the objective is to study a universal dip-coating method based on a zwitterionic polymer-DOPA conjugate for its anti-biofouling performance.
