Preparation of porous copolymers of methacrylic acid (MAA) and ethylene glycol dimethacrylate (EGDMA) by suspension-emulsion and bulk polymerization is presented. The influence of polymerization technique, type and amount of porogen on the copolymer structure has been investigated. The porous structure of MAA-EGDMA copolymers has been examined. Porous structure was determined for all of the obtained copolymers. Chemical nature of the copolymers surfaces was characterized by Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) and IR photoacoustic spectroscopy (FT-IR/PAS).
