A simple and direct method for derivatization of solid polysaccharides is presented. The novel methodology is based on the combination of organic acid-catalyzed esterification or etherification and photochemical thiol-ene click derivatization of a heterogeneous polysaccharide. The solid cellulose was “organoclick” modified with aryl, alkyl and polyester groups, respectively. The modification allows for a highly modular and metal free surface modification of solid polysaccharides.
