Linear alpha-olefins, such as 1-hexene and 1-octene, are important comonomers in the production of linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE). The conventional method of producing 1-hexene and 1-octene is by oligomerization of ethylene, which yields a wide spectrum of linear alpha-olefins (LAOs). While there exists several processes for producing 1-hexene via… (More)
D-Ribofuranose and D-arabinofuranose derivatives were converted in a few steps into their 1,4-diketone derivatives, which were pinacol cyclised under the action of SmI2 to form the corresponding chiral cyclobutanediol products. These products can potentially be applied to the synthesis of anti-viral agents, some of whose structures incorporate chiral… (More)
The diphenyl-phosphine groups in the title compound, C(29)H(31)NP(2), are staggered relative to the PNP backbone. The N atom adopts an almost planar geometry with the two P atoms and the C atom attached to it, in order to accommodate the steric bulk of the phenyl groups and the alkyl group. Three C atoms of the 1,2-dimethylpropylamine group are disordered… (More)
In situ prepared chromium catalysts containing bulky diphosphinoamine (PNP) ligands, upon activation with MAO, are extremely efficient catalysts for the trimerisation of ethylene to 1-hexene.
Chromium-based catalyst systems with polar-substituted diphosphinoamine ligands are selective for either trimerisation or tetramerisation of ethylene, depending on the position of the polar groups on the aryl rings.
The unprecedented selective tetramerisation of ethylene to 1-octene was recently reported. In the present study various mechanistic aspects of this novel transformation were investigated. The unusually high 1-octene selectivity in chromium-catalyzed ethylene tetramerisation reactions is caused by the unique extended metallacyclic mechanism in operation.… (More)
