Abstract : Our aims are to understand how the surface structures of colloids affect their activity as catalysts and to design catalysts in aqueous colloids that have general activity for decontamination. We have bound catalysts into the gel phase and onto the surface of copolymer latexes for autoxidation and hydrolysis reactions. These colloidal ion exchange resins could be precipitated to obtain an easily packaged and transported catalyst, and redispersed quickly into water for use in the field. The colloids might also be incorporated into latex coatings having catalytic activity for decontamination.
