      Abstract: We present a new strategy for the   heterogenization of catalysts. The strategy relies on the   containment of soluble polymers within a polyurea microcapsule.   Diffusion ordered spectroscopy and spin?spin relaxation   measurements are used to demonstrate that the encapsulated   polymer is behaving as if it is in solution, not as a solid.   Since the interior polymer behaves as if it is in solution, it   should be possible to modify the capsule and polymeric contents   separately.
