Using poly(trimethylene carbonate) (PTMC) network surfaces containing unreacted macromer methacrylate groups, thiol-functionalized biotin (SH-undecyl-biotin) can be bound to the surface. With micro contact printing techniques and making use of the biotin-streptavidin (SAv) binding system patterned surfaces with biological functionality can be prepared in a very straightforward manner. This method has high potential in numerous biomedical applications.
