Functional cellulose substrates with tetrazole moieties are generated to serve as universal platforms for the spatio-temporal immobilization of synthetic ultra-low fouling polymer brushes and protein species via a nitrile imine-mediated tetrazole-ene cycloaddition (NITEC)-based protocol. Poly(carboxybetaine acrylamide) brushes are grafted from initiators photo-patterned by NITEC utilizing single electron transfer living radical polymerization. Streptavidin is photo-immobilized with remarkable efficiency, opening the possibility to generate new materials for biomedical and biosensing applications.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
