Next-Generation Antimicrobial Nanocoatings for Medical Devices and Implants provides a detailed, up-to-date overview of the nano-based antimicrobial coatings used to combat medical device-related biofilms. An introduction to biofilms and how they infect medical devices is included, as well as strategies/modification techniques used to target these biofilms. This book evaluates the various antimicrobial coatings formed using nanomaterials such as silver, inorganic materials, organic materials, carbon dots, surfactants, and electrospun fibers, specifically for us on medical devices and implants. Numerous coating methods are discussed, along with the biological characterizations of these coating materials, and their toxicological and environmental impact. This book is a useful reference for materials scientists, biomedical engineers, and those working on the development of novel biomaterials for use in medical devices and implants.
