Stereocontrolled coordination-insertion polymerization of rac-lactide remains a catalytic challenge despite the large number of studies and the successful marketing of polylactide as a disposable plastic. Although a number successful catalysts have been proposed, a system re-uniting high stereoselectivity with high activity and chemical robustness remains… CONTINUE READING
