A novel class of polymers was obtained by insertion of dirhodium(II, II) metal systems into a methacrylate backbone; the synthesis was realized by free radical polymerization of an appropriate methacrylate-functionalized dirhodium polymer precursor, namely [Rh-2(form)(2)(MA-COO) (2)] (form = N, N'-di-p-tolylformamidinate) (MA-COO = 2-(methacroyloxy) ethyl-phthalate), with methylmethacrylate (MMA); the new copolymers, in solution, show reversible CO-absorption, connected to the axial reactivity of dirhodium(II, II) species.
