It has been shown that two N-methylstyrylpyridinium salts weakly associate in aqueous solution. When styrylpyridinium groups are attached to poly(vinyl alcohol) as pendant groups, the association is much more marked and its efficiency is greater for the 4-styrylpyridinium salt than for the 2-styrylpyridinium salt. From fluorescence measurements, it is concluded that the cycloaddition reactions occur via the associated pendant groups.
