Abstract

Atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) is receiving increasing attention as a method for surface functionalization. A simple way-based on the hydrophilicity of the substrate-to discriminate between surface and bulk polymerization in materials having a homogeneous distribution of initiator groups is discussed. The Figure shows an AFM image of polymer beads after functionalization in dimethylformamide.
