Description

Antimicrobial polymers, materials which prevent microorganism growth, are needed for many everyday applications from food packaging and water treatment to medicine and healthcare. By combining the information of different materials as well as antimicrobial action modes and applications within one source, the book provides a general summary of the field. With contributions from leading scientists the book is suitable for researchers in polymers, chemistry, biology and materials science interested in an overview of antimicrobial polymeric materials as well as the recent advances in their synthesis, properties and applications.
