Macroporous materials based on a new reactive copolymer of 2-cyanoethyl methacrylate, 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate, and ethylene glycol dimethacrylate have been prepared via photo-induced free-radical polymerization in the presence of porogeneous solvents. The effect of the composition of mixed porogenes on the porous structure of the resulting solid copolymers has been studied. A number of synthesis parameters have been optimized, namely, the concentration of initiator and the time of polymerization. As exemplified by a model biologically complementary (bioaffine) pair, the created polymer material shows promise for design of bioanalytical panels (microbiochips).
