Abstract

yond healthcare, undesired bacterial contamination, attachment, and colonization cause significant issues in many other areas of everyday life and industry. Examples include the food manufacturing and distribution and the marine industry. Despite the wide application of antibiotics, cleaning, and prophylactic practices, to this date, the problems with undesired bacterial adhesion have not found a complete solution. Moreover, the growing prevalence of antibiotic-resistant microorganisms threatens to escalate the problem over the coming years substantially.

The extent of the problem of infections and undesired bacterial contamination has triggered massive research efforts by researchers around the World in an attempt to find a solution. One area that holds substantial promise is nanotechnology. Over the last three decades, scientists and engineers have made exciting discoveries of natural and engineered nanoscale materials capable of eliminating bacteria or preventing their attachment to surfaces.

This Special Issue aims to serve as an exciting collection of primary research articles on the recent progress in the synthesis, fabrication, and utilization of nanoscale materials for antibacterial applications...
