Antifouling properties of chitosan coatings on plastic substrates
Journal of Agricultural and Marine Sciences
In the current study, chitosan coatings were fabricated on plastic substrata and investigated for their antifouling activities. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and water contact angle measurement (WCA) of the fabricated chitosan films showed smooth and hydrophilic surface with WCA below 60°. Chitosan coating on plastic substrate showed 88% reduction in settlement of bryozoan Bugula neritina larvae compare to the control after 3 hours incubation in dark conditions with no larval mortalitydoi:10.24200/jams.vol23iss1pp92-98 fatcat:u4deqsi7lfdmjd2q7y4oyjd5ju
