Bioinspired poly(dopamine) (PDA) films are merged with antifouling poly(MeOEGMA) brushes utilizing a nitrile imine-mediated tetrazole-ene cycloaddition (NITEC)-based phototriggered surface encoding protocol.

The antifouling brushes were photopatterned on PDA surfaces, leading cells to form confluent layers in the non-irradiated sections, while no adhesion occurred on the brushes resulting in a remarkably precise cell pattern. The presented strategy paves the way for the design of tailor-made patterned cell interfaces.
