Antimicrobial Polymers by Jose Maria Lagaron, Maria Jose Ocio, Amparo Lopez-Rubio

By Jose Maria Lagaron, Maria Jose Ocio, Amparo Lopez-Rubio

This publication makes a speciality of the coupling of plastics and biocides, with specific focus on typical biocides and the nanofabrication of biocides, and in their ultimate houses and task. Chapters handle the major applied sciences hired to impart antimicrobial habit to polymers, together with chemical amendment of the polymers themselves, in addition to discussing purposes in foodstuff packaging, scientific units, nanomaterials, and coatings. The insurance balances outlining the applied sciences with explaining the mechanisms of antimicrobial habit. Concluding chapters hide regulatory issues and human defense and environmental hazards of antimicrobial polymers.
