Polymer brushes, grafted on flat and curved surfaces, exhibit unique structural properties and rich functional behavior at different conditions. Besides challenges to basic science, they present fascinating possibilities for technological applications in industry and medicine. The current understanding and theoretical description of polymer brushes are reviewed with emphasis on scaling concepts and diverse theoretical approaches. Results from computer simulations and pertinent experimental evidence are summarized in view of their consequences for the understanding of polymer brushes.
