The physical properties of porous polysterene beads and their ability to undergo plasmachemical funtionalization was studied. The experiments were performed using allylamine plasmas and a combination of Fmoc derivatization chemistry and cross-sectional Raman microscopy. The results showed that higher amine group loadings were obtained for small particles with large internal pore diameters.
