In the past few decades, the applications of nanomaterials in biologic systems have become one of the
most studied areas. Many novel syntheses and processing methods have been developed to generate nanomaterials
to enhance biomedical applications. Among those methods, polydopamine (PDA) integrated nanomaterials have attracted
considerable interest for various types of biomedical applications. This concise review outlines the basic
chemistry and material science regarding PDA and discusses its successful applications in drug delivery, biosensing,
antifouling and antimicrobial activities, as well as its interaction with cells.
Keywords: Polydopamine, antifouling, biomedical, biosensoring, coating, drug delivery.
