Abstract : This contribution describes the development of Solution Exchange Lithography as a novel, modular methodology for sequential photopatterning. Without ever (re)moving the substrate, this approach readily combines (externally regulated) polymerization and subsequent post modification to dial in any desirable surface property with precise spatial control. This enables the continuous fabrication of hierarchically patterned polymer brushes with chemically complex architectures.
