Offers a complete and brief overview of different strategies for preparation of antimicrobial materials
1 Polymers Against Microorganisms 2 Bacterial infections: few concepts 3 Chemical approaches to prepare antimicrobial polymers 4 Nano-micro polymeric structures with antimicrobial activity in solution 5 Antimicrobial/antifouling surfaces obtained by surface modification 6 Nano/microstructured Antibacterial Surfaces 7 Antimicrobial fibers and fabrics obtained by electro/melt spinning 8 Antimicrobial hydrogels 9 Antibacterial polymeric membranes 10 Environmental and safety issues 11 Applications and current status of antimicrobial polymers
This book provides an introductory and general overview of advances in polymers towards their employment as antimicrobial materials. The author describes current approaches for avoiding microbial contamination, toward macro-molecular antibiotics, and prevention of antibiotic-resistant bacteria by use of polymers. He establishes the remaining issues and analyzes existing methodologies for treating bacterial infections and for preparing antimicrobial materials.
