Published: 26 May 2014 by MDPI in 1st International Electronic Conference on Materials session Functional Materials and Interfaces for Biomedical Applications
Abstract: This paper is dealing with the state of the art of antibacterial nanostructured coatings with silsesquioxane content along the last decade. As follows, the requirements for achieving efficient coatings, chemical functionalization methods, working mechanisms and a classification of different silsesquioxane-based materials will be provided in order to have a complete overview of their most recent breakthrough for antibacterial/antifungal applications.
