Abstract

Polydopamine, a ‘mussel-inspired’ polymer, has been explored extensively in materials science as a universal coating. However, as an easily available, stable and environmentally benign material, it has recently been discovered to demonstrate catalytic applications. In this short review, we briefly discuss the main approaches employing polydopamine in the catalysis of organic transformations. These include metal/polydopamine-type systems and metal-free approaches that exploit the acid/base properties of this versatile polymer.
