Excellent on this relatively extensive chapter is that it summarizes the findings of the preparation, characterization and application potential of nanostructures (especially metal and polymer) on solid substrates. The chapter focuses primarily on the published results of our work for the last 6 years. The results which were published in 54 journal papers from our scientific group are summarized and discussed. These results may find application in material engineering, especially in the field of tissue engineering (treatment of skin cover loss and transplantation of blood vessels) and electronic engineering (electronics - increase of the adhesion of the metal layer on the substrate, or photonics - preparation of metamaterials).
Most of the experiments, e.g. modification and characterization of physico-chemical surface properties of materials including biocompatibility and anti-microbial tests were performed with the equipment at the Institute of Chemical Technology Prague. Zeta-potential measurement was determined at the University of J.E. Purkyne, Usti nad Labem.
