Material surface engineering has attracted great interest in important applications, including electronics, biomedicine, and membranes. More recently, dopamine has been widely exploited in solution-based chemistry to direct facile surface modification. However, unsolved questions remain about the chemical identity of final products, their deposition kinetics and binding mechanism. In particular, the reaction kinetics is a key for improving surface modification efficiency. Here, we demonstrate that high O2 concentrations in the dopamine-solution lead to highly homogeneous, thin-layer deposition on any material surfaces via accelerated reaction-kinetics, elucidated by Le Chatelier's principle toward dopamine oxidation steps in a Michael-addition reaction. As a result, highly-uniform, ultra-smooth modified surfaces are achieved in much shorter deposition times. This finding provides new insights into the effect of reaction-kinetics and molecular geometry on the uniformity of modifications for surface engineering techniques.
