A polymer membrane containing N, N′-disalicylidenethylene-diaminocobalt (Co(salen)) was prepared. The Co(salen) supported in the polymer not only worked as a reversible and specific oxygen-adsorbent but discontinuously bound oxygen at the atmospheric oxygen partial pressure of ca 15 cmHg to give an on-off-like oxygen-binding curve. Oxygen permeation through the Co(salen) membrane was also augmented in the higher upstream oxygen pressure region, which was caused by the specific oxygen-binding to the Co(saten) fixed in the membrane.
