Quinone functionalized cross-linked nanogels are deposited onto industrial stainless steel surfaces precoated with a biomimetic glue. Antibacterial property is imparted to the surface by loading the nanogels with silver nanoparticles. The reactivity of the quinone groups of the nanogels towards thiol functions is exploited to afford long-term antibiofilm and antiadhesion properties to the substrate.
