The preparation of patterned photoswitchable surfaces by employing the nitrile imine-mediated tetrazole ene cycloaddition (NITEC) photoinduced reaction in the presence of dipolarophiles based on photoresponsive azobenzene moieties is reported. The dipolarophile used is a maleimide carrying either an azobenzene unit or a first generation dendron containing two azobenzene units. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) is employed to analyze the functionalized silicon wafers, while time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS) evidences the spatial control of the functionalization of the surface achieved by using a micropatterned shadow mask. Water contact angle measurements and optical inspection observing the behavior of a water droplet demonstrate the photoinduced change on wettability of the structured functionalized surfaces due to the reversible trans-to-cis isomerization of the azobenzene moities. Patterned photoswitchable surfaces are prepared by employing a nitrile imine-mediated tetrazole ene cycloaddition (NITEC) photoinduced process in the presence of dipolarophiles based on photoresponsive azobenzene moieties. Trans-to-cis azobenzene isomerization of the surface allows for the spatially resolved tuning of the surface properties. Copyright © 2013 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.

29 citations in Scopus
Search Google Scholar™
32 citations in Web of Science®

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.
