We introduce ruthenium complexes with photoresponsive coordination bonds for light-controlled surface functions, including light-controlled surface patterns, manipulating protein adsorption and controlling wettability. Meanwhile, the fascinating features of photoresponsive Ru-ligand dynamic coordination bonds in surface functions are presented and their future applications are prospected.

Key words: Photoresponsive ruthenium complex, Dynamic coordination bond, Control of surface function
