Utilizing click chemistry to design functional interfaces through post-polymerization modification

Author affiliations

Abstract

Post-polymerization modification is a simple and effective method to add complex functionality to a polymeric interface. A wide variety of click reactions have been utilized as a means of post-polymerization functionalization on surface-bound polymers to tune interfacial properties, such as friction, wettability, and adhesion. Patterning surfaces with spatial control of chemical functionality has also been obtained through orthogonal or sequential click reactions. This review highlights the progress in post-polymerization modification of polymers covalently attached to a surface, focusing on the design of functional interfaces in terms of the various reactive functional groups.
