A model system has been developed to study the redox behaviors of flavin derivatives appended onto random polystyrene copolymers through "click" chemistry strategies. The results demonstrate that flavin units attached onto polymers exhibit site-isolated redox behaviors, yielding new materials with electrochemically tunable associations (Ka(ox) = 450 M-1, Ka(red) = 18 200 M-1) to complementary diamidopyridine (DAP) functionality. © 2005 American Chemical Society.
