In this study, the influence of the temperature on the transmittance self-oscillation of a non-thermoresponsive polymer chain was investigated. The polymer chain was composed of a biocompatible and non-thermoresponsive poly-vinylpyrrolidone (PVP) main-chain covalently-bonded to the 10 wt% ruthenium catalyst moiety (Ru(bpy)3) of the BZ reaction. As a result, the amplitude of the transmittance self-oscillation slightly decreased with the increase in the temperature. The period of the transmittance self-oscillation decreased with increasing the temperature in accordance with the Arrenius equation. Therefore, the period of the self-oscillation can be controlled by the selection of the temperature.
