Reversible immobilization onto the surface of highly porous polymers through the co-assembly of stimuli-responsive polymers is explored (see figure). Elastin-based side-chain polymers (EBPs) are prepared by RAFT and attached to the surface of PEG-based emulsion-templated porous polymers, leading to a responsive surface capable of pH-controlled reversible immobilization.
