Pore‐size‐specific functionalization is a novel approach that allowspreviously undreamed of control of the location of groups undergoing reaction in the surface modigication of preformedporous polymers. That sozespecific functionalization makes possible the simultaneous accommodation of seemingly incompatible requirements is demonstrated by the preparation of porous polyner beads with bimodal surface chemistry. Applications of this technique are foreseen in thechromatographic separation of complex miztures, sensors, catalyses, and eczyme immobilization.
