Low-surface-energy poly(methylpropenoxyfluoroalkylsiloxane) or poly(perfluoroacrylate) coatings were used as a potential means of inhibiting the bacterial colonization of surfaces. The coatings confirms to the molecular design requirements, that is, they possess a flexible linear backbone onto which pendent site chains exhibiting intermolecular interactions are attached. The polymers are capable of forming relatively smooth coatings.
