Adhesion and friction forces in biofouling attachments to nanotube- and PEG- patterned TiO2 surfaces.

Abstract

The TiO2 nanotube pattern with features down to 20nm (TN20) is highly and efficiently resistant to fibrinogen and S. aureus attachment. The ability of TN20 to resist biofouling adsorption, is due to low biofouling-surface adhesion force that determines the initial biofouling attachment, as well as the low friction coefficient that enables a complete removal… (More)
