Abstract: Marine biofouling, growth on submerged surfaces, is a problem for the commercial shipping industry but also for recreational boat owners. It leads to increased fuel consumption, loss of maneuverability and is a source of invasive species. The common solution to avoid biofouling is to use antifouling paints containing biocides which hinder the fouling organisms from growing on the ship hull. Medetomidine (4-[1-(2,3-dimethylphenyl)ethyl]-1-H-imidazole, also known as Selektope) is used in antifouli... more
