Antifouling Surfaces and Materials: From Land to Marine by Feng Zhou

By Feng Zhou

This e-book studies the improvement of antifouling surfaces and fabrics for either land and marine environments, with an emphasis on marine anti biofouling. It explains the variations and intrinsic dating among antifouling in land and marine environments, that are in line with superhydrophobicity and superhydrophilicity respectively. It covers numerous themes together with biomimetic antifouling and self-cleaning surfaces, grafted polymer brushes and micro/nanostructure surfaces with antifouling homes, in addition to marine anti biofouling. Marine anti biofouling contains either ancient biocidal compounds (tributyltin, copper and zinc) and present eco-friendly, non-toxic antifouling options. This e-book is meant for these readers who're attracted to greedy the basics and purposes of antifouling.

Feng Zhou is a professor on the country Key Laboratory of good Lubrication, Lanzhou Institute of Chemical Physics, chinese language Academy of Sciences.

One of the emerging techniques is the modification of surfaces with polyelectrolyte multilayers (PEMs) of opposite charge, which attached great interest because of the simplicity, versatility, and the possibility to control the functionality and the structure, and their potential development in the field of bio-relevant applications, such as anti-erosion, antifouling, biosensors and biomimetics, and drug delivery [109–112]. Chemicals in these systems are not covalently linked, but can generate dense, uniform, and thick surface films, further form complex multilayers and nanostructures.

3,4-Dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA) containing peptides conjugated to PEG (mPEG-DOPA) adsorbed onto Au and Ti surfaces, rendering these surfaces resistant to cell attachment for a long period. By using DOPA and PEG, surface densities are higher than other existing PEG immobilization strategies, thus afford a strong correlation between PEG surface density and protein resistance [68]. They also reported an entirely new class of synthetic antifouling macromolecules that mimic polypeptides. These polymers are specifically designed for surfaces with robust, and long-term resistance to fouling in the biological environment [39].
