polymer support

Polymer to or in which a reagent or catalyst is chemically bound, immobilized, dispersed, or associated.
  1. A polymer support is usually a network polymer.
  2. A polymer support is usually prepared in bead form by suspensionpolymerization.
  3. The location of active sites introduced into a polymer support depends on the type of polymer support. In a swollen-gel-bead polymer support the active sites are distributed uniformly throughout the beads, whereas in a macroporous-bead polymer support they are predominantly on the internal surfaces of the macropores.
