Study of Antibacterial Activities of Carbon Nanotube Based Epoxy Composites to Prevent Biofouling in Marine Environment: A Lab Scale Approach

Study of Antibacterial Activities of Carbon Nanotube Based Epoxy Composites to Prevent Biofouling... The multiwalled carbon nanotubes were reinforced in 0.25 wt percentage to prepare epoxy composite. The CNT reinforced polymer sample and neat epoxy samples were exposed to pure culture of bacteria such as Bacillus and Pseudomonas to test the inhibition of microbial growth on the composites. Biofilm characterization and microscopic studies showed excellent performance on the composite samples, as well as a reduced microbial growth with 0.25 wt% of the MWCNTS in the polymer. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Marine Engineering Frontiers Science and Engineering Publishing Company

Abstract

The multiwalled carbon nanotubes were reinforced in 0.25 wt percentage to prepare epoxy composite. The CNT reinforced polymer sample and neat epoxy samples were exposed to pure culture of bacteria such as Bacillus and Pseudomonas to test the inhibition of microbial growth on the composites. Biofilm characterization and microscopic studies showed excellent performance on the composite samples, as well as a reduced microbial growth with 0.25 wt% of the MWCNTS in the polymer.
