Abstract

This Special Issue of Coatings is focused on the study of different photocatalyst-basedcoatings for developing self-cleaning, air-purifying and antibacterial properties. In this case, awide variety of photocatalysts (TiO2, Si-TiO2, TiO2−xNy, Ag-TiO2, Mo-TiO2, ZnO, SnO2-Ag,Nb2O5 and C60 fullerene) were evaluated towards the removal of different molecules.Similarly, substrates such as glass, silica, sapphire, polycarbonate, aluminium, stainless steel,concrete and mortar were included in this issue. This information certainly contributes to a betterunderstanding of the photocatalytic removal of different molecules (e.g., Escherichia coli,Staphylococcus aureus, resazuring, rhodamine B, methylene blue, Demeton-S, 2-chloroethylphenyl sulfide (CEPS) and NOx (NO and NO2)) and the coating technologies required forsuch performances. Based on these interesting results, I encourage you to read through thisSpecial Issue and use the valuable information provided therein to help us move forward inthe exciting area of photocatalytic coatings for developing air-purifying, self-cleaning, andantimicrobial properties.

Abstract

This book collects the articles published in the Special Issue “Polymeric Materials: Surfaces, Interfaces and Bioapplications”. It shows the advances in polymeric materials, which have tremendous applications in agricultural films, food packaging, dental restoration, antimicrobial systems, and tissue engineering. These polymeric materials are presented as films, coatings, particles, fibers, hydrogels, or networks. The potential to modify and modulate their surfaces or their content by different techniques, such as click chemistry, ozonation, breath figures, wrinkle formation, or electrospray, are also explained, taking into account the relationship between the structure and properties in the final application. Moreover, new trends in the development of such materials are presented, using more environmental friendly and safe methods, which, at the same time, have a high impact on our society.
