Procedures for covalent bonding of ligands to polymer support and their reactions with molybdenum precursors to obtain polymer-supported molybdenum complexes are outlined. These supported molybdenum complexes are used as catalysts for organic transformations such as oxidation of alkenes, phenols, allyl alcohol, ethylbenzene and benzoin, and for polymerization reaction. Higher activity, recyclability and high turn over numbers of most supported catalysts are confirmed in many cases which offer real prospect for technological developments.

Keywords: Polymer-supported complexes, catalysts, organic transformations, alkene epoxidation, catalytic applications of molybdenum complexes
