Abstract
Monodisperse, submicron-sized, reactive polystyrene (PST) microspheres havi ng active ester groups on their surfaces were prepared by emulsifier-free e mulsion ca-polymerizations of ST with water-soluble, active ester monomers (AEMs) which were newly synthesized. The resulting microspheres showed char acteristics of a high density of active ester groups on their surfaces and a high reactivity towards primary amines. Some applications using the highl y reactive microspheres were attempted in the preparation of supraparticles and in the surface modification of solids. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science B.V.
