(matrix presented) Solid functionalized porous monolithic disks with reactive polymer chains grafted to their inner pore surface have been developed for scavenging excess reagents from reaction mixtures. A poly(chloromethylstyrene-co-divinylbenzene) monolith was cut into disks and activated by graft polymerizing 4-vinyl-2,2-dimethylazlactone to its pore surface. In contrast to the direct copolymerization of reactive monomers, grafting increases the accessibility of the reactive groups. Application of the reactive disks is demonstrated in the scavenging of excess amines from reaction mixtures in different solvents.
