Title:
Bioinspired Dopamine/Mucin Coatings Provide Lubricity, Wear Protection, and Cell‐Repellent Properties for Medical Applications 
Abstract:
Even though medical devices have improved a lot over the past decades, there are still issues regarding their anti-biofouling properties and tribological performance, and both aspects contribute to the short- and long-term failure of these devices. Coating these devices with a biocompatible layer that reduces friction, wear, and biofouling at the same time would be a promising strategy to address these issues. Inspired by the adhesion mechanism employed by mussels, here, dopamine is made use of...    »
