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… Expand
