The increasing interest in cluster-containing polymers is nowadays based mainly on two aspects: (i) It is reasonable to expect that clusters or cluster complexes incorporated into the polymers would considerably modify polymer materials properties (adhesive, magnetic, thermal, etc.). (ii) Cluster-containing polymers are of great interest as catalysts for different reactions,1 combining the advantages both of homogeneous catalysts (due to solubility or swelling in organic solvents) and heterogeneous ones (due to the increase of cluster stability by their bonding to the polymer which prevents cluster fragmentation or aggregation to large metal particles).
