Heterodinuclear catalysts for CO2/epoxide copolymerisations

Abstract:

This thesis describes the preparation of new heterodinuclear catalysts for the selective copolymerisation of epoxides with CO2 or anhydrides. The catalysts are based on a symmetrical diphenol-tetraamine macrocycle to prepare heterocomplexes coordinated to zinc and magnesium. The coordination sphere is completed by co-ligands derived from carboxylates. Optimisation of the synthesis is carried out to enable a straightforward route to new catalysts through the metathesis of a...
