The catalytic activity of poly (3-qunuclidinyl methacrylate) (PQM) and its copolymer (PQM-StX) with styrene was investigated in the reaction of phenyl isocyanate with 1-butanol. Their catalytic activity was compared with those of poly[4-(N,N-dimethylamino) butyl methacrylate] (PDBM) and 1,4-diazabicyclo[2.2.2]octane (DABCO) and proved to be superior to that of PDBM, but inferior to that of DABCO. The catalytic activity of PQM-StX was higher than that of PQM. This would be caused by interaction of styrene component of PQM-StX with phenyl isocyanate.
