'Biocoating' surfaces with atmospheric plasmas

Funded under: FP6-NEST

Abstract

Biological molecules display remarkable functions that developers of new materials are eager to harness. A European consortium is exploring an original approach to coating the surface of almost any material with active biomolecules. The idea is to use cold atmospheric-pressure plasmas to deposit the biomolecules together with a thin polymer coating. Potential applications are wide-ranging, and the partners hope to obtain biocoatings optimised for specific uses within the next three years.
