Biofouling refers to the adverse impact of adsorption and adhesion of biological entities like proteins and cells onto devices implanted inside the human body. In this work, the synthesis and the electrochemical modification of poly(pyrrole) to reduce biofouling is studied. When poly(pyrrole) is cathodically doped with sodium ions, cells do not adhere on the surface due to an increase of hydrophilicity.
