In this novel platform, a micropatterned polymer brush was obtained by grafting poly(poly(ethylene glycol) methyl ether methacrylate) (poly(PEGMA)) from a thin macroinitiator film using atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP). A pattern of holes was formed in the macroinitiator film by taking advantage of its spontaneous dewetting above the glass transition temperature from a bottom polystyrene film, driven by unfavorable intermolecular forces. Patterning by dewetting can be achieved at length-scales from a few hundred nanometers to several tens of micrometers, by simply thermally annealing the bilayer above the glass transition temperature of the polymer. This approach is substrate-independent, as polymer films can be cast onto surfaces of different size, shape, or material. As a demonstration of its potential, proteins, and individual cells were attached on targeted bioadhesive polystyrene areas of the micropatterns within poly(PEGMA) protein-repellent brushes. We anticipate this approach will be suitable for the patterning of brushes, especially for biomedical applications such as in the study of single cells and of cell cocultures.
