Horseradish peroxidase (HRP) catalyzed H2O2-dependent oxidation and polymerization of p-aminophenylmethycarbinol (pAPMC), but not p-aminoacetophenone (pAAP) or other aniline derivative with elecron-withdrawing character. The effect of the H2O2 feed ratio on the polymerization was examined. Chemical structure was determined by IR and 1H, 13C NMR spectroscopic analysis. The p(pAMPC) formed primarily through a covalent bond between the benzilic carbons and the amino group of another pAPMC molecule. Thermal stability of p(pAPMC) was analyzed by DSC and TGA.
