Synthetic, natural, or composite, biomaterials occupy a key position in the management of disease and support continuous advancement of health care. Clinical utility of many permanent and biodegradable implants can be significantly improved via surface modification. Here, we discuss a novel polymer material developed from essential oil-based monoterpene alcohol using plasma polymerisation. The developed coatings are cytocompatible and limit adhesion and proliferation of a variety of pathogens. The coating can also be used to control degradation behaviour of resorbable materials, such as magnesium.
