Title: Staphylococcus Aureus Biofilm Formation On Polypyrrole: An Electrical Overview
Authors: Nascimento, Marcio Luis Ferreira

Keywords: Polypirrol;Biofilme

Abstract: The development of organic devices based on conducting polymers for biofilm detection requires the combination of superior electrical response and high surface area for biofilm incorporation. Polypyrrole is a potential candidate for application in biofilm detection and control due to its characteristic superior electrical response and strong interaction with bacteria, which enables the use of the bioelectric effect in resulting devices. In this study, chemically synthesized polypyrrole was applied as a support for biofilm growth of S. aureus. Modifications in the electrical response of the polymeric template were explored to identify general mechanisms established during the deposition of the biofilm
