Antiviral Materials and Coatings

Antimicrobial surfaces are well established; even in ancient times, copper vessels were known to reduce infections from drinking water. In modern times, particle, polymer, monolayer, and other coatings have been developed to combat a variety of microbes including bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and algae. Of these, probably the least studied is antiviral surfaces and coatings. However, given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, antiviral coatings are now assuming greater importance. Recently, copper and copper oxide have been shown to inactivate SARS-CoV-2, the causative virus for COVID-19.
