Electromodulated release of nitric oxide through polymer material from reservoir of inorganic nitrite salt

Author affiliations

Abstract

Herein, we report a new approach to electromodulate the release of NO at physiological levels through polymeric materials from a stable nitrite electrolyte reservoir, with potential application in controlling biofilm formation and clotting on intravascular catheters. The NO flux can be turned ‘on’ and ‘off’ electrochemically, on demand.
