Fibrous antibacterial coatings from self-assembled silver-binding elastins

Journal Article


Abstract


  • In this work, we report a straightforward and green method to prepare fibrous self-assembled silver-based coatings on polypropylene surfaces under physiological conditions. The silver coatings exhibited excellent antibacterial properties against both gram-negative E. coli and gram-positive bacteria S. aureus.
