Polymer that exhibits catalytic activity.
- Certain synthetic polymer catalysts can behave like @E02159@.
- Poly(4-vinylpyridine) in its basic form, and sulfonated polystyrene in its acid form, are examples of polymers that can act as catalysts in some base- and acid-catalyzed reactions, respectively.
