Antimicrobial materials
Main Discussion Members Files
[edit][history][add page]
Antimicrobial polymers are already being developed. However, most of the research concentrates on plastics while other types of materials should be developed as well. It would be for instance interesting to develop antimicrobial metals or metal alloys and antimicrobial fibers (even if they are plastic fibers.)
The use of such materials would be an asset in facilities where aseptic environments are hard to create. They would decrease the risk of infection (and hence death) from surgical procedures.
