Title:
THERMALLY ACTIVE COMPOSITE POLYMERIC COMPOSITIONS
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2018/201129
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
In one aspect, composite polymeric compositions are described herein which, in some embodiments, are thermally responsive to electromagnetic radiation for the destruction of microbes and associated biofilms. Briefly, a composite polymeric composition comprises a polymeric matrix and photo-thermal particles comprising conjugated polymer dispersed in the polymeric matrix, the photo-thermal particles providing sufficient heat to destroy microbial species upon irradiation with infrared radiation.
