Catechols participate in several natural processes and functions, ranging from the adhesive properties of marine organisms to the storage of certain metals ions. Accordingly, many scientists worldwide have been studying and mimicking these natural systems to develop new active materials and coatings. On page 653, Daniel Ruiz-Molina and co-workers review in detail a wide variety of relevant studies in this area.
