  Abstract  
  Micro/nanocontact printing of water-soluble biomacromolecules and polymers has evolved into a robust and versatile technique for surface patterning. Various biomacromolecules such as nucleic and proteins as well as synthetic polymers have been successfully printed by this technique. In particular, use of unmodified poly(dimethyl siloxane) stamps offers unique advantages and capabilities for controlling the dimension, structure and composition of the printed patterns. Moreover, this technique has found numerous applications across diverse fields of science and engineering.
