Multifunctional nanostructured surfaces with distinct coatings are important for their applications from industry to biomedical fields. Surface roughness and free energy play important role in achieving such applications. The aim of this project is to realise multifaceted applications of nanostructures surfaces depending upon their morphologies. This is achieved by tuning the synthesis parameters and performing further modifications by coating distinct materials, resulting in unique surface properties. These modifications are characterized by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM). These surfaces are also characterized for wettability analysis by measuring the static as well dynamic contact angles. Furthermore, the bactericidal properties of as synthesised surfaces are observed using spot assays and counting the colony forming units.
