Abstract : This project has focused on the development of new highly-efficient, selective catalysts for widely commercial and biological reactions of carboxylic and phosphoric acids and their derivatives. The first phase of the project included the design and synthesis of linear, water-soluble polymers that are expected to self organize in aqueous solution to form lipophilic substrate- binding domains adjacent to catalytic sites effective in transacylation reactions. The second phase of this work has dealt with the continuing evaluation of synthetic catalysts and the development of new methods for detailed structural characterization of these polymeric materials. The ultimate aim of this phase of the investigation is to ascertain the limits of substrate- selectivity for linear, synthetic polymeric catalysts.
