Investigations of the Ligand Electronic Effects on [1.0]-Diimine Nickel(II) Catalyzed Ethylene Polymerization

Abstract

The synthesis and characterization of a series of dibenzhydryl-based α-diimine Ni(II) complexes bearing a range of electron-donating or -withdrawing groups are described. Polymerization with ethylene is investigated in detail, involving the activator effect, influence of polymerization conditions on catalyst activity, thermal stability, polymer molecular… (More)
