Abstract:
Photoactive coatings of sol-gel ZnO suspensions were electrosprayed on glass substrates to produce self-cleaning antimicrobial functionalized surfaces. ZnO-functionalized materials exhibited a uniform external surface consisting of a pattern of microspheres with diameters in the 100-300 nm range. [read more]
