Strategies to design surfaces that prevent fouling by proteins, bacteria, and marine organisms are reviewed. The two major approaches involve the design of surfaces that resist the attachment of biofoulants or degrade or kill them. Highlighted techniques include PEG-functionalization, surface modification with polycations, photoactivated self-cleaning coatings, coatings that incorporate biocidal agents or enzymes, and the use of structured surfaces.
