Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is an important biomedical material, but there is a lack of convenient functionalization methods. Here, a rapid, effective and simple one-step strategy for PVC surface functionalization by combining the “sulfur(VI)-fluoride exchange” (SuFEx) reaction with benzophenone photochemistry is presented.
