Graphite nano-coating kills bacteria infesting implants, as designed by Swedish scientists

March 27, 2020

A new, antimicrobial implant coating, using carbon-based nanoplatelets, has been developed by scientists at Chalmers University of Technology (Chalmers) in Sweden – the vertically-protruding nanoplatelets can slice through the protective outer membrane of bacteria that might otherwise colonise the implant, effectively killing it. Human cells will not be harmed, because a human cell is about […]
