Abstract Scope Shortly after the COVID-19 pandemic entered the public lexicon as the most significant global pandemic in recent memory, researchers across the worldwide STEM community retooled and refocused their research upon all matters of potential relevance to treating, preventing, mitigating, and understanding the SARS-CoV-2 virus as well as the disease. Accordingly, a subset of the contemporary materials science and engineering community began to dedicate more time and resources towards antimicrobial coatings and surfaces as a public health measure. While COVID-19 has subsequently been shown to be transferred via non-contact transmission pathways primarily, the motivation for this work also centers upon the development of a more robust understanding of the micro-structural features and properties of the conventional copper nanostructured copper coatings as they relate to anti-pathogenic contact killing and inactivation applications. Thus, discussion for applying such functional materials to antiviral and antimicrobial applications is considered herein.
