Adv Mater. 2016 Nov 29. doi: 10.1002/adma.201603823. [Epub ahead of print]CeO2-x nanorods are functional mimics of natural haloperoxidases. They catalyze the oxidative bromination of phenol red to bromophenol blue and of natural signaling molecules involved in bacterial quorum sensing. Laboratory and field tests with paint formulations containing 2 wt% of CeO2-x nanorods show a reduction in biofouling comparable to Cu2 O, the most typical biocidal pigment.© 2016 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
