Interfacial electron-transfer reactions between polymer-bonded metal complexes and the substrates in solution phase were studied to show colloid aspects of polymer catalysis. A polymer-bonded metal complex often shows a specifically catalytic behavior, because the electron-transfer reactivity is strongly affected by the polymer matrix that surrounds the complex. A polymer-Cu complex coated electrode was successfully applied as the interfacial catalyst for the oxidative polymerization of phenol.
