A water-insoluble Polymer with Intrinsic Microporosity (or PIM, here for the particular case of the Tröger Base system PIM-EA-TB, BET area ca. 10 mg) is demonstrated to act as a rigid host environment for highly water-insoluble molecular catalysts, here tetraphenylporphyrinato-iron (FeTPP), surrounded by aqueous solution-filled micropores. A PIM-EA-TB film containing catalyst is deposited onto the electrode and immersed for voltammetry (i) with 4-(3-phenyl-propyl)-pyridine to give an organogel… CONTINUE READING
