Polymer Photomodification of Soft and Hard SubstratesNicholas J. Turro and Jeffrey T. Koberstein, Columbia University

Photochemistry is a powerful tool that can be used to selectively modify surface properties on soft (e.g. polystyrene) and hard (e.g. silicon wafer) substrates. Using light to impart functionality allows for the creation of a surface with high spatial resolution.

In 2005, we photochemically patterned polymer substrates by functionalizing the surface with photoactive diblock copolymers. In the presence of a photoacid generator and subsequent exposure to UV light, tert-butyl acrylamide groups (Fig. 1a, solid red) were ‘deprotected’ to form acrylic acid groups (Fig. 1a, dotted red) in the irradiated regions.

In 2006, we photopatterned phthalimide self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) by grafting polysaccharides onto silicon wafers (Fig. 2). In 2007, we photogenerated glycan arrays onto mixed phthalimide-amine SAMs: irradiation of the mixed SAMs in the presence of polysaccharides (Fig. 3a, red) produced glycan arrays that were subsequently used to detect B. anthracis spores (Fig. 3b).
