Plasma polymerisation was used to deposit thin oligomeric films of terpinen-4-ol on a range of substrates. The coatings were examined in terms of their chemical properties and surface architecture to ascertain the changes in chemical composition as a result of exposure to the plasma field. The antifouling and antimicrobial activity of oligomeric terpinen-4-ol coatings were then examined against such human pathogens as Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus epidermis. The bacterial adhesion patterns were investigated using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM) and confocal scanning laser microscopy (CSLM).

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
