ABSTRACT:  Three Co(III) complex-containing poly(methacrylic acid-co-styrenesulfonic acid)s (CoPMASs) with different copolymerization ratios were synthesized, and the effects of conformational transition on electron-transfer reaction between CoPMAS and Fe(edta)2− (edta=ethylenediamine-N,N,N′,N′-tetraacetic acid) were investigated. The conformation of CoPMAS varied with the ratio of residues having negative charge as carboxylate and styrenesulfonate on one polymer chain (α′). The α′-induced conformational transition of CoPMAS was similar to that of PMAS as the parent polymer. In electon-transfer reactions, the degree of reduction of Co(III) complex by Fe(edta)2− depended on α. This dependence is explained by the decrease of shield effect: the Co(III) complex surrounded in polymer backbone was exposed to the aqueous phase by the α′-induced conformational transition. The rates for the electron-transfer reactions of CoPMASs With Fe(edta)2− increased with increasing α′. The increase was attributed to a lowering of negative charge density around the Co(III) complex by the α′-conformational transition.
