Applications of Pyridine-Containing Polymers in Organic Chemistry

WithGerald L. Goe, Charles R. Marston, Eric F. V. Scriven, Edward E. Sowers

Studies of the application of crosslinked polyvinylpyridine as reagents, catalysts, and as supports for metallic catalysts and reagents are described. The synthesis of polymeric acylation catalysts of the 4-dimethylaminopyridine type and their effectiveness in esterifications and rearrangement are discussed. Process advantages of these catalysts are outlined.
