抜粋

A new type of self-oscillating polymer was prepared by utilizing the Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction. In this study, capture sites with a positive charge for an oxidizing agent as a counterion were incorporated into the copolymer of N-isopropylacrylamide and the ruthenium complex as a catalyst. Soluble-insoluble self-oscillation of the polymer was first achieved without adding an oxidizing agent. The effect of temperature on the self-oscillating behavior was investigated. It was clarified that the polymer had two advantageous characteristics because of the higher LCST; one is to enable self-oscillation around body temperature, and the other is to cause the oscillation for a longer time without intermolecular aggregation among the polymer chains in the reduced state. This achievement of self-oscillation of polymer chains including an oxidizing agent may lead to their practical use under oxidant-free conditions.
