polymer phase-transfer catalyst

Polymer that acts as a phase-transfer @[email protected] and thereby causes a significant enhancement of the rate of a reaction between two reactants located in neighboring phases owing to its @[email protected] of the @[email protected] of one of the reactants across the @[email protected] to the other phase where the reaction takes place.
Polymer phase-transfer catalysts in the form of beads are often referred to as triphase catalysts because such catalysts form the third phase of the reaction system.
