Silver coordination polymer chains were deposited on Au(111) as a model surface, as well as on gold alloy and titanium as dental implant and restorative materials. The topography of the surface was analysed on the model substrate and it was found to be a nano-structured crystalline material. In vitro investigations in a flow chamber imitating the oral environment prove the anti-bacterial... Plus

    Summary
    Silver coordination polymer chains were deposited on Au(111) as a model surface, as well as on gold alloy and titanium as dental implant and restorative materials. The topography of the surface was analysed on the model substrate and it was found to be a nano-structured crystalline material. In vitro investigations in a flow chamber imitating the oral environment prove the anti-bacterial properties of the silver compound.
