The chemist′s guide to the galactosyl unit: A chemo-enzymatic process is developed for the multivalent functionalization of cellulose surfaces via regioselective oxidation of heteropolysaccharides with galactose 6-oxidase. Reductive amination, surface sorption, and click chemistry enable the assembly of (bio)chemically active cellulose surfaces for applications ranging from functional biocomposites to in vitro diagnostics.
