Abstract

This review article summarizes our more recent investigations of the esterolytic action of water soluble imidazole containing polymers. In our previous work we have explained increased reactivity of polymeric reactants in terms of electrostatic and cooperative effects. Recently, we have directed our efforts in emphasizing the apolar interaction as it has reflected dramatic rate enhancements and proven a predominant factor in determining the maximum catalytic efficiency. Polymeric catalysts which are included in this review are poly[1-alkyl-4(5)-vinyl-imidazoles] and their copolymers, hydrophobic terpolymers of 4(5)-vinylimidazole, copoly[vinylamine/4(5)vinylimidazole], and poly(ethylenimine-g-L-histidine). All of these catalysts share the common property of water solubility and the capability of attaining high catalytic efficiencies which is attributed to apolar interactions.
