Rare-earth-metal-hydrocarbyl complexes bearing linked cyclopentadienyl or fluorenyl ligands: synthesis, catalyzed styrene polymerization, and structure-reactivity relationship.
A series of rare-earth-metal-hydrocarbyl complexes bearing N-type functionalized cyclopentadienyl (Cp) and fluorenyl (Flu) ligands were facilely synthesized and an unusual asymmetric η(3)-allyl bonding mode of Flu moiety was observed. Expand
Chain-shuttling polymerization at two different scandium sites: regio- and stereospecific "one-pot" block copolymerization of styrene, isoprene, and butadiene.
The first example of chain-shuttling copolymerization of styrene, isoprene, and butadiene by two different scandium catalysts is reported, achieving for the first time block copolymers with perfect syndiotactic polystyrene (sPS) and highly regulated cis-1,4-polyisoprene (PIP) blocks. Expand
Alternating Copolymerization of Cyclohexene Oxide and Carbon Dioxide Catalyzed by Organo Rare Earth Metal Complexes
The mono(cyclopentadienyl)-ligated rare earth metal bis(alkyl) complexes (C5Me4SiMe3)Ln(CH2SiMe3)2(THF) (Ln = Y (1a), Dy (1b), Lu (1c), Sc (1d)) and polyhydride complexesExpand
Catalytic addition of amine N-H bonds to carbodiimides by half-sandwich rare-earth metal complexes: efficient synthesis of substituted guanidines through amine protonolysis of rare-earth metal
Reaction of [Ln(CH(2)SiMe(3))(3)(thf)(2)] (Ln=Y, Yb, and Lu) with one equivalent of Me(2)Si(C(5)Me(4)H)NHR' (R'=Ph, 2,4,6-Me(3)C(6)H(2), tBu) affords straightforwardly the corresponding half-sandwichExpand
Living catalyzed-chain-growth polymerization and block copolymerization of isoprene by rare-earth metal allyl precursors bearing a constrained-geometry-conformation ligand.
Aminophenyl functionalized cyclopentadienyl ligated rare-earth metal allyl mediated cationic systems display high cis-1,4 selectivity for the polymerization of isoprene, and living reversible andExpand
