A Thirst for Polymeric Antimicrobial Surfaces/Coatings for Diverse Applications

Part of the Materials Horizons: From Nature to Nanomaterials book series (MHFNN)


It is significantly accepted that microorganisms such as bacteria, yeast, fungi, and algae inhabit our world, which dominate us in number and size. We only happen to wander for a certain period of time in their world. In spite of our own cell count, even our own body is outnumbered by 10:1 microbial cells and we are living only because we can accept this fact and seek to coexist [1]. Sometimes, the presence of microorganisms is essential like in the growth factors of insects and animals.
