Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Photoinitiated click reactions possess significant advantages over traditional click reactions as they allow for spatial and temporal control. This enables the formation of patterned or gradient surfaces with specific substrates, controlled attachment of biological entities, etc.. In this minireview, we highlight the latest progress on photoinitiated click chemistry and demonstrate the future potential of this emerging area.
