Abstract: This study aimed at the present dilemma in selective catalysis, about how to furnish metal-nanoparticle catalysts with predictable selectivity. This issue was addressed by developing a "key-vs.-lock"-like polymer reactor made of an elaborate molecularly imprinted polymer containing metal nanoparticles, which was capable of predictably and selectively catalyzing its specified substrate. Unlike reported polymer reactors and enzyme-like imprinted polymer catalysts, which lack either predictable selectivity or reactive metal nanoparticles, this polymer reactor has incorporated both of the molecular recognition ability of the polymer carrier and the catalytic sites of metal nanoparticles into one entire entity and thereby dictated selective catalysis. This study highlighted how this polymer reactor works in a selective way in contrast to reported catalytic polymers or polymer reactors, which thus opens opportunities of tailoring selective catalysts for controlled chemical processes
