Two strategies for preparing catalytically active molecularly imprinted nitroxide-containing polymers are outlined. Both strategies rely upon the thermal rearrangement chemistry of tertiary amine N-oxides. To this end, several polymers were prepared and the polymeric nitroxides were revealed by oxidation with m-CPBA. All of the resulting polymeric catalysts proved to be competent mediators of the oxidation of alcohols.
