Molecular interactions between templating porogen particles and the underlying substrate can be exploited to create a controlled release mechanism while maintaining the bulk properties of the matrix material. Furthermore, these interactions can be reversed by priming the substrate with a hydrophobic layer to produce a strong interface with a nanoporous layer.
