Abstract: In the last decade, hyaluronan (HA, polyanion) and chitosan (CHI, polycation) biopolymers have been assembled by layer-by-layer (LbL) for the synthesis of antibacterial coatings. As electrostatic interactions are the main driving force for the formation of LbL films, pH and ionic strength...
