Abstract

Material-independent coating has emerged as an advanced tool for interface engineering in numerous applications, including drug delivery, single-cell nanoencapsulation, catalysis, and agrotechnology. Despite remarkable progress made in controlled film formation on solid substrates, the high adhesion of coating species, exemplified by metal-phenolic materials, hinders the film detachment and subsequent formation of free-standing films. In particular, there have been no reports on cytocompatible fabrication of bio-friendly free-standing films of metal-phenolic materials and polyphenols, which is highly demanded in biomedical engineering and nanomedicine. Considering the high demand for cytocom..
