Summary

Metal-containing reactive polymers are described. The active site can be in the polymer backbone or present as a pendant group off of the polymer backbone. These active sites can be for optical properties, such as photoluminescence, or for many other properties. The use of cobalt and titanium-containing polymers is emphasized. In this chapter, the emphasis is on having the active site in the polymer backbone.
