The “delivered” group can contain at least one of an ionic species, a fluorescent tag, a bioreactive site, a catalyst and the like, and the anchor group an epoxy, a (meth)acrylate or an isocyanate. The water-disbursable topcoat can also include a solubilizing group such as 2-butanone or 4-methyl-2-pentanone coupled to the HBP.
