Abstract

Abstract We demonstrate the possibility of using FTIR-spectroscopy to study the chemical composition of conidia films and to define surface hydrophobicity. It was possible to predict conidium hydrophobicity based on the data obtained for component ratios. This is the defining factor for microorganism adhesion to solid surfaces and for further processes of biodegradation.
