The preparation of patterned polypeptoid (POI) brushes on gold and oxide substrates by surface-initiated polymerization of N-substituted glycine N-carboxyanhydrides from patterned self-assembled monolayers is presented. Furthermore, the chemoselective functionalization and anti-biofouling properties of POI brushes are shown.
