Li et al. provide a detailed study on the influence of wettability on the antibacterial efficiency of silver nanoparticle based coatings. These coatings showed an excellent antibacterial effect. By controlling the surface polymerisation of mussel-inspired dendritic polyglycerin and post-functionalization Li et al. produced surfaces with wetting properties going from superhydrophilic to superhydrophobic.
