Molecular recognition driven catalysis using polymeric nanoreactors

Author affiliations

Abstract

The concept of using polymeric micelles to catalyze organic reactions in water is presented and compared to surfactant based micelles in the context of molecular recognition. We report for the first time enzyme-like specific catalysis by tethering the catalyst in the well-defined hydrophobic core of a polymeric micelle.
