New Antibacterial, Antiadhesive Films Based on Self Assemblies of Modified Tetraetherlipids
We report the surface modification of a cellulose dialysis membrane by tetraether lipids and silver colloids to improve the antiadhesive and antibacterial properties of the biopolymer. The lipid was covalently attached to the membrane via the bivalent linker cyanuric chloride. The biologically evaluation show that the adhesion of serum components as well as bacteria, was decreased by this novel coating.
