Mechanophotopatterning on a photoresponsive elastomer was demonstrated by Bowman and coworkers, enabling for the first time the ability to precisely and simultaneously manipulate both the material’s shape and surface topography by exposure to light without the need for solvents, molding, or physical contact. This work was recently published in Advanced Materials [Kloxin, Scott, Park & Bowman, Adv. Mater. 23 (17) 1977 (2011)] and is featured in a Nature “New and Views” article [Huck, Nature 472 (7344) 425 (2011)].

Bowman et al. developed a method for catalyzing the copper catalyzed azide–alkyne cycloaddition using conventional photoinitiators to reduce Cu(II) to Cu(I). Unlike, previous methodologies this approach allows the selective patterning of the reaction using standard photolithographic techniques. B.J. Adzima, Y. Tao, C.J. Kloxin, C.A. DeForest, K.S.
