Self-assembly of a tripeptide into a functional coating that resists fouling

Author affiliations

Abstract

This communication describes the self-assembly of a tripeptide into a functional coating that resists biofouling. Using this peptide-based coating we were able to prevent protein adsorption and interrupt biofilm formation. This coating can be applied on numerous substrates and therefore can serve in applications related to health care, marine and water treatment.
