Supplementary Material

After modified with magnetic nanoparticles, magnetic sulfonated PS-DVB beads (100 mg) was modified with APTES solution (1% (v/v), 100 mL). Thereafter, ammonium hydroxide (28%, 2 mL) was added to the bead dispersion and was shaken for 20 min at room temperature. To the dispersion TEOS (2 mL) was added and vigorously shaken for 12 h at room temperature. The silica coated magnetic beads were collected by magnet and washed with ethanol five times and redispersed in to absolute ethanol to obtained 1 mg/ml silica coated silica coated magnetic beads. The magnetic ability of silica coated magnetic beads under magnetic field was seen in Figure S1.
