Antibacterial hydrogel coating by electrophoretic co-deposition of chitosan/alkynyl chitosan.


Despite much effort has been paid to develop aseptic implant devices, the infection associated with medical implant still remains a significant problem. Here, we report a potential coating material derived from a natural biopolymer chitosan. Firstly, chitosan functionalized with alkynyl moiety (ACS) was prepared by reaction between chitosan and 3… (More)
