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.
- Polymer-supported catalysts are often based on @NT07562@ polymers in the form of beads. They are easy to separate from reaction media and can be used repeatedly.
- Examples of polymer-supported catalysts are: (a) a @PT07159@ that can coordinate reactants, (b) @C01172@ palladium dispersed in a swollen @N04113@ that can act as a hydrogenation @C00876-2@.
- Polymer-supported @E02159@ are a type of polymer-supported catalysts.
