Polymerization catalysis or polymer-modified catalysts

Polymer Catalysis  has  become  an  independent  and  thriving  branch  of  chemistry. Extensive development of this field is attributed to success achieved in synthesis and investigation of so-called functional polymers as well as to success attained in homogeneous, metal complex catalysis. The fruitful cooperation of  these  two directions,  namely the  fixation  of homogeneous  catalysts  or  transition metal compounds on organic polymers, has led to the novel idea of heterogenization of homogeneous metal complex catalysts. Catalysis  by  polymers  is  the  new  intensively  developing  field  of  science.
