Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Over the past decade, due to ban of TTB-containing antifouling coatings, substantial efforts have been made in identifying environmentally-friendly antifouling compounds from diverse sources of natural products, such as microbes, algae, invertebrates, vertebrates and even terrestrial plants and animals. Various bioassay systems have also been developed to assess the efficacy of antifouling agents. However, very limited compounds have been developed into products.
This Special Issue will provide extensive reviews on antifouling compounds from all sources, and the challenges we are currently facing and possible ways to move forward.
