    Poly(2-oxazoline)s are emerging revolutionary biomaterials, exhibiting comparable and even superior properties to well-established counterparts. Overcoming current tedious wet synthesis methods, we report solvent-free and substrate independent, plasma polymerised nanoscale biocompatible polyoxazoline coatings capable of controlling protein and cell adhesion, and significantly reducing biofilm build up.
