Abstract

A stimuli-responsive polymer brush system is designed to switch on and off surface functionality and prevent functional groups from fouling by grafting together two polymer brushes with precisely controlled lengths. The polymer brush with functional groups has a fixed length, while the other brush extends and collapses as the environment changes.
