Group 4 amidinate complexes as olefin polymerisation catalysts

Abstract:

This Thesis describes the syntheses, structure and olefin polymerisation capability of a series of group 4 ?1-amidinate-supported complexes. Chapter One introduces metal-catalysed polymerisation of olefins with emphasis on the development of homogeneous molecular catalysts. The evolution of ?post-metallocene? systems, cocatalysts and the chemistry of activation are explored providing context to the work detailed in subsequent chapters.

Chapter Two describes the synthesis and charact...
