Characterization of pHEMA-based hydrogels that exhibit light-induced bactericidal effect via release of NO

Abstract

A light-activated NO donor, [Mn(PaPy(3))(NO)]ClO(4) (1a), has been incorporated into HEMA-based polymer hydrogel and the nitrosyl-polymer conjugate materials 1a(x) · HG and 1a(x) · HG(MB) have been characterized. The NO releasing properties and antibacterial capabilities of these materials in conjunction with growth attenuators such as hydrogen peroxide and… (More)
