Aiming to produce fully self-oscillatory materials [1], materials that act life-like, materials that are able to carry and dispense their content in predefined rhythm we have made number of advancement in the area of polymeric oscillators in lab conditions. In addition to demonstrating polymeric alkyne-terminated substrates as viable in the oscillatory palladium-catalysed carbonylation reaction [2] we have now shown that polymer-bound catalytic species can also yield oscillations in pH. [3] Moving towards autonomous rhythmic materials we now developed chitosan-based palladium catalyst fully capable of delivering oscillatory pH behaviour in a batch-like carbonylation reaction set-up.1.
