Marine biofouling on surfaces is a global problem with detrimental effects. Some of the common issues associated with biofouling include higher fuel consumption for marine vessels, corrosion, emission of greenhouse gases, etc. Coatings represent one of the important strategies to achieve protection against biofouling and its effects due to the incorporation of novel materials as matrices. In this respect, the book aims to present many functional marine coatings systems developed in the recent years to achieve effective protection against biofouling. Recently, membrane technology has also gained interest because of simple and environmentally friendly approach for seawater treatment. Thus, the book also focuses on the recent developments gained in this area.
The book is a valuable reference for polymer, chemical, biochemical and materials engineers, as well as practicing scientists and researchers in both academia and industry. It is also a useful resource for postgraduate university students in chemical, polymer and materials disciplines, along with interdisciplinary streams.
