Abstract
Recently, three-dimensional GO-based hydrogels have attracted great attention due to the unique advantages. It is generally know that bacteria are everywhere and many of them could cause the diseases and threaten human health. However, developing new antibacterial materials with high-efficiency, low cost, broad-spectrum, and easy recycling is still a great challenge. Herein, inspired by mussel, we synthesized benzalkonium bromide/polydopamine/reduced graphene oxide hydrogel (BKB/PDA/rGOG). The as-prepared three-dimensional hydrogels were characterized by scanning eletron microscope (SEM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) and Raman spectroscopy. The resultant hydrogels exhibited strong antibacterial effects to both Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria due to the synergistic effect of graphene oxide and benzalkonium bromide. In addition, the resultant hydrogels could be removed easily from the resolution, which was undoubtedly good news for industry application.
