What is it about?

What metals could protect materials from bacteria, how, and why? These questions are fundamental to developing new antibacterial and anti-biofilm materials. We showed them.

Why is it important?

How and why would biofilms form on metallic materials? And how could we control them? We hope this review paper must be the tip for you to answer.


What's next? We are now going to clarify the critical factor between polymeric materials and bacterial polymers in environments. The results of this paper will lead to the next phase.
