The development of surface coating strategies to inhibit the attachment and growth of bacteria has received increased attention from researchers. This article describes a new coating for aluminum surfaces that relies on the controlled fusion of muramidase (a lysozyme enzyme) into the surface spaces of a thin film based on silica nanoparticles and the sequential adsorption of an organofluorosilane compound.
