Abstract:
Much attention has been devoted to the synthesis and antimicrobial studies of nanopatterned surfaces. However, factors contributing to their potential and eventual application, such as large-scale synthesis, material durability, and biocompatibility, are often neglected in such studies. In this paper, the ZnO nanopillar surface is found to be amenable to synthesis in large forms and stable upon exposure to highly accelerated lifetime tests (HALT) without any detrimental effect on its antimicrobial activity. Additionally, the material is effective against clinically isolated pathogens and biocompatible in vivo. These findings illustrate the broad applicability of ZnO nanopillar surfaces in the common equipment used in health-care and consumer industries.
