Because of the relevant characteristics of these systems and the growing interest to produce new antimicrobial substances, it is relevant to compile the most common characteristics of antimicrobial polymers and the advances this field has achieved. Therefore, this chapter will deal with the general characteristics of three major groups of antimicrobial polymers; polymeric materials with intrinsic bactericidal properties, antifouling or pathogen repellent polymers, and polymeric substrates enhanced with discrete antimicrobials.
