Resins containing pendant chloromethyl groups were prepared by suspension co-polymerization techniques and functionalized with imidazole. This imidazole polymer, at various percent crosslinking and loading was used to examine the utility of CoDPGB2-2MeOH as a reagent to investigate the existence of isolated functionalized sites in the resin. In this study, CoDPGB2-2MeOH is attached to the imidazole containing polymer via axial coordination and the resulting polymer complexes studied by ESR. The ESR analysis of the coordinated cobalt centers yielded characteristic spectra of 11 and 21 imidazole-cobalt adducts depending on the crosslinking and loading of imidazole. The reaction of the polymer bound cobaltII complex with dioxygen has been investigated. Factors influencing the comparison of the oxygen affinity for the polymer bound complex with solution data are discussed. Author
