A thermally robust amine-imine nickel catalyst precursor for living polymerization of ethylene above room temperature.

Abstract

A bulky amine-imine nickel complex containing two 2,6-diisopropyl substituents after activation with MMAO or Et(2)AlCl can polymerize ethylene in a living fashion over a period of 120 minutes at room temperature or above.
