James, C., Johnson, A. L. and Jenkins, A. T. A., 2011. Antimicrobial surface grafted thermally responsive PNIPAM-co-ALA nano-gels. Chemical Communications, 47 (48), pp. 12777-12779.
Thermally responsive Poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) co-allylamine (PNIPAM-co-ALA) nano-gels were synthesised and grafted onto non-woven polypropylene. Silver nitrate was incorporated into the nano-gels in their expanded state and their antimicrobial properties tested. Bacterial growth was measured before and after the Lower Critical Solution Temperature. Below the LCST, bacteria grew, above the LCST bacterial growth was prevented or retarded.
