An efficient hydrophilic-antimicrobial thin film coating of functionalized polymaliamides for controlling pathogenic microorganisms is reported in this article. The article is enriched with synthesis, characterization and antimicrobial studies of polymaliamides and its thin film. FTIR, 1 H NMR, 13 C NMR details of the polymaliamidesis explicated,and the thermal properties of the polymer are revealed using TGA, DSC studies and detailed explanation is provided in the article. The activity of the polymer and thin film against Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, tuberculosis variant bacteria Mycobacterium smegmatis and Candida albicans are also reported ornately. The morphological behavior of film when interacting with the microbes is studies using SEM and AFM studied and presented elaborately.
