Paper Title:
A Study of a Retention of Antimicrobial Activity by Plasma Polymerized Terpinen-4-ol Thin Films
  Abstract

Terpinen-4-ol is the main constituent of Melaleuca alternifolia essential oil known for its biocidal and anti-inflammatory properties. The possibility of fabricating polymer thin films from terpinen-4-ol using radio frequency (RF) plasma polymerisation for the prevention of the growth of Pseudomonas aeruginosa was investigated, and the properties of the resultant films compared against their biologically active precursor. Films fabricated at 10 W prevented bacterial attachment and EPS secretion, whilst polyterpenol films deposited at 25 W demonstrated no biocidal activity against the pathogen.
