Targeted Synthesis of Porous Aromatic Frameworks and their Composites for Versatile, Facile, Efficacious, and Durable Antibacterial Polymer Coatings




Novel quaternary pyridinium-type porous aromatic frameworks, PAF-50, and their composites, AgCl-PAF-50, have been synthesized to effectively and efficiently inhibit the growth of bacteria. Most importantly, both PAF-50 and AgCl-PAF-50 have excellent compatibility with conventional polymers, which lead to great operation flexibility and versatility for antibactrial coatings on various medical devices simply via solution or spray coating.
