The synthesis of a tris(bipyridine)ruthenium(II) complex, covalently bound through a polyethoxylated chain to an insoluble polymer is described. The spectroscopic properties of several Ru(bpy)32+ complexes anchored to insoluble polystyrene supports, and of the monomeric complex are compared and shown to be very similar. Methyl viologen luminescence quenching studies of the excited state of the polymer show behaviour different from that of monomeric Ru(bpy)32+. © 1989.
