Polyphenols as universal coatings and as bioactive agents in porous materials like cements

Polyphenols-Applications-2021-vincent-ballWe are pleased to announce Prof. Vincent Ball from Université de Strasbourg, France as the major speaker for the Polyphenols Applications 2021 Congress which will be organized on September 22-24, 2021.

Prof. Ball will give a presentation entitled  "Polyphenols as universal coatings and as bioactive agents in porous materials like cements".

Summary of Talk: Polyphenols like tannic acid, pyrogallol, gallic acid and others are able to form thin films on all kinds of solid-liquid interfaces, can be deposited in the form of particulates when complexed with metallic cations like Fe3+ and can also take part in layered architectures (the so-called layer-by-layer film). In all cases they provide electroactivity, antimicrobial and anti-oxidant properties to the deposited films. We will finally show that the same polyphenols may be incorporated in cements and plaster to modify their wettability and to improve their biological and mechanical properties.
