A thermally responsive polymer based onN-isopropylacrylamide (NIPAAm) with a sharp lower critical solution temperature (LCST) transition for facile, conformal, and substrate independent surface modification is presented. The novel polymer, p(NIPAAm-co-DEGDVE), synthesized via initiated chemical vapor deposition (iCVD), exhibits a relatively sharp LCST of ≈28.5±0.3 °C as determined via quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring (QCM-D).
