Antifouling and Photocatalytic Antibacterial Activity of the AquaSun Coating in Seawater and Related Media

Résumé : Prolonged testing of the new xerogel photocatalytic coating AquaSun applied to a surface probe immersed in ocean water irradiated with simulated solar radiation shows excellent action against biofouling. Activated by moderate solar radiation, the organosilica film has also good antimicrobial properties. Considering the high stability, the environmental footprint, and the low cost of this sol–gel marine coating, the technology has significant potential toward replacing conventional antifouling and foul-release coatings with a single product of broad applicability.
