Air-stable (phenylbuta-1,3-diynyl)palladium(II) complexes: highly active initiators for living polymerization of isocyanides.


A family of air-stable (phenylbuta-1,3-diynyl)palladium(II) complexes were designed and prepared in a facile synthetic procedure. Their structures were characterized by (1)H and (13)C NMR, MS, and X-ray analysis. These Pd complexes were revealed to efficiently initiate the polymerization of phenyl isocyanides in a living/controlled chain growth manner… (More)
