I've been looking for the chemistry of sporopollenin. In particular the reactions that can be done to attach different groups to it.
I understand that sporopollenin itself isn't completely understood, but I know someone has to of been able to bind something to it.

Right, thjey first must unravel the mystery of its composition.

But there are numerous studies underway, you just have to spend a few hours doing google searches.
I dont know any more than basic 101. :?
