The microstructuring of nanometric polymer thin films is demonstrated by two methods. Enzymatic digestion in combination with soft-lithography is used to obtain patterned surfaces. Alternatively structured regeneration of a cellulose derivative to pure cellulose leads to surfaces with spatially separated wettabilities and different chemical functionality. Subsequent enzymatic digestion of the cellulose structures further allows the manufacturing of desired surface patterns.
