      Abstract: A new strategy for supporting   catalysts based on the microencapsulation of linear polymers is   presented. In this paper, we present a DMAP capsule that is   capable of catalyzing acylation reactions. The catalyst is   compared to DMAP on cross-linked and linear polystyrene, as well   as small molecule DMAP. Rapid optimization through modification   of encapsulation conditions is demonstrated. The optimization   provides a dynamic range of catalysis from 90 to 300% of the rate   of DMAP on polystyrene.
