Poly(2-oxazoline)s (POxs) are a versatile class of biocompatible polymers, which have been investigated as poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) alternatives. In recent years, POxs have drawn significant attention as coatings for antifouling applications. In this tutorial review different approaches to immobilize POxs on surfaces as well as properties and applications of POx coated surfaces will be presented.
