Cavitation Engineered 3D Sponge Networks and Their Application in Active Surface Construction

The design of the 3D architecture surfaces with both space- and time-dependent functionality (cell attraction, pH-trigged self-cleaning, antiseptic/disinfection) is in the focus. The innovative story includes: sonochemical surface activation, formation of feedback surface component (pH-responsible micelles), proof of responsive activity (time resolved cell adhesion and bacteria deactivation) and space adhesion selectivity (surface patterning).
