Abstract:

Over 40 organometallic polymers have been synthesized and evaluated for their antifouling performance. The response of isolated marine sliming bacteria to several organometallic polymers has been tested. In- situ exposure trials and laboratory studies have indicated that organometallic polymers are capable of good antifouling performance while releasing organometallic ions at a rate at least one order of magnitude less than state-of-the-art antifouling coating systems.
