Bio-inspired Material-independent Surface Chemistry

Abstract : This presentation will discuss the emerging surface chemistry utilizing catechol and catecholamine. The catechol/catecholamine compounds have exhibited material-independent surface modification [1]. Utilizing this unprecedented property, we have developed various material-independent surface functionalization strategies such as hydroxyapatite formation [2], […]
