A vitamin B12 derivative was immobilized on a core-shell hyperbranched polymer, and the hybrid polymer was characterized by GPC, UV-vis, IR as well as TEM analyses. The hybrid polymer exhibits catalysis for the dehalogenation of phenethyl bromide to form ethylbenzene and 2, 3 -diphenylbutane by irradiation with UV light at room temperature.
