The chemical processes underlying polydopamine adhesion properties remain elusive. Herein, we show that film deposition is critically dependent on dopamine concentration, is accelerated by quinone-forming oxidants, and is enhanced by the addition of long-chain diamines. Reported evidence points to a two-phase process, in which early deposition of a highly adhesive amine component is followed by film growth involving subsequent monomer adsorption on the deposited layers.
