A bioinspired light induced avenue for the design of patterned functional interfaces

Author affiliations

Abstract

An avenue for the development of spatially resolved functional interfaces is presented. By introducing a novel, photo-reactive molecule – carrying a DOPA functionality and a photo-reactive group – we merge the ability of mussels to adhere to any surface with the spatial and temporal control of photo-click reactions, opening a plethora of applications in the biomedical and materials fields.
