Several macroporous styrene–divinylbenzene copolymers were prepared using different diluents. The copolymers were chloromethylated with monochlor methyl ether and aminated with N,N-dimethyl-2-hydroxyethylamine in order to perform strongly basic anion exchanger, type II. It was established that the network morphology of anion exchanger determines its ion-exchange rate. It was, also established, by means of transmission electron microscopy, that chloromethylation reaction led to the morphological changes in the macromolecular network of the copolymers.
