Recently, chemical application of protein cages has been one of the most attractive targets in the field of bio-nanotechnology. We report here construction of Rh(nbd)·apo-ferritin and the polymerization of phenylacetylene catalyzed by the composite. The crystal structure of Rh(nbd)·apo-ferritin indicates that a subunit of ferritin had three Rh binding sites and all of the sites are located on the interior. We attempted polymeriztion of phenylacetylene using the composite. The UV-vis spectra and GPC results showed that the polymerization proceeded in the ferritin cage.
