redox polymer

Also contains definitions of: electron-exchange polymer, oxidation-reduction polymer
Polymer containing groups that can be reversibly reduced or oxidized.
  1. Reversible redox reaction can take place in a polymer main-chain, as in the case of polyaniline and quinone/hydroquinone polymers, or on side-groups, as in the case of a polymer carrying ferrocene side-groups.
  2. Use of the term 'redox @RT07166@' is strongly discouraged.
