The paper reviews control of surface wetting via the production of polymer coatings sensitive to changes in external conditions. Graft polymer compositions having the adaptive properties are obtained by method of surface-initiated atom transfer radical polymerization on aluminum surface. The chemical composition of polymer coatings is confirmed by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The morphology of the modified surface is investigated by scanning electron microscopy. The possibility of wetting control of modified aluminum surfaces modified in a wide range with a change in the pH value and temperature is shown.
