Abstract

We report the fabrication of patterned binary polymer brushes via colloidal particle templating combined with electrodeposited ATRP, RAFT, and ROMP initiators. From the hexagonally close-packed template and subsequent patterned arrays, surface-initiated polymerization (SIP) demonstrated novel non-lithographically and laterally patterned binary polymer brush composition.
