Bactericidal Effects of Natural Nanotopography of Dragonfly Wing on Escherichia coli
Studies the natural bactericidal effect of dragonfly wing nano-textured surface (NTS) on the E. coli cell wall. Uses advanced microscopy techniques and proposes a model. The work demonstrated that the dragonfly wing has two prominent types of nanopillar structures and that the membrane damage didn't require direct contact between the nanopillars and the bacterial cell membrane.
