polymer-supported catalyst

Catalyst system comprising a polymer support in which catalytically active species are immobilized through chemical bonds or weaker interactions such as hydrogen bonds or donor–acceptor interactions.
Notes:
  1. Polymer-supported catalysts are often based on network polymers in the form of beads. They are easy to separate from reaction media and can be used repeatedly.
  2. Examples of polymer-supported catalysts are: (a) a polymer-metal complex that can coordinate reactants, (b) colloidal palladium dispersed in a swollen network polymer that can act as a hydrogenation catalyst.
  3. Polymer-supported enzymes are a type of polymer-supported catalysts.
