    Abstract

    An easy and convenient method for the preparation of functionalised porous polymer films (76 × 14 mm) of uniform thickness (60-120 µm) has been developed using microscope slides stacked together as a mould for UV-initiated polymerisation of comonomer mixtures. Both gel-type and macroporous styrene and methacrylate-based species have been prepared by appropriate choice of crosslinker (%) and porogen. The incorporation of functional comonomers: 4-vinylpyridine, vinylbenzyl chloride or glycidyl methacrylate allows ready further chemical modification of the films for potential application in a number of areas.
