Abstract

A plant-inspired, amine-containing small phenol molecule, 5-pyrogallol 2-aminoethane (PAE), can perform surface functionalization in a material-independent manner. The co-existence of primary amine and pyrogallol moieties are essential for the material-independent coating ability of PAE. The multi-functionality of the PAE-mediated surface chemistry will be useful in many areas including biomedical applications, drug delivery, and the development of energy storage devices.
