In this study, we report that interaction of the network functional polymers based on cis-tetraphenylcalix[4]resorcinarene with aqueous solutions of electrolytes is controlled by diffusion of ions in a polymeric phase. The nanoreactor effect consisting in sufficiently high rate increase of a cation diffusion flux in bifunctional polymers containing sulfonic acid and phenol ionogenic groups has been found. For steady and non-steady states the solutions of the fundamental differential equation of cation diffusion in bifunctional polymers by means of the spherical layer model are obtained for a variety of initial and boundary conditions with constant diffusion coefficient. The proposed mathematical model explains the nanoreactor effect in bifunctional polymers.
