Differently shaped polymeric matrices were efficiently coated with stimuli-responsive hydrogels for a wide range of applications using a new methodology. By combining plasma surface activation and polymerization in supercritical media at mild conditions, we report the direct smart coating of microcarriers and membranes in gram-scale quantities with a scalable, green, and low-cost approach.
