Cationic amphiphilic non-hemolytic polyacrylates with superior antibacterial activity

Author affiliations

Abstract

Acrylic copolymers with appropriate compositions of counits having cationic charge with 2-carbon and 6-carbon spacer arms can show superior antibacterial activities with concomitant very low hemolytic effect. These amphiphilic copolymers represent one of the most promising synthetic polymer antibacterial systems reported.
