Neutral salicylaldiminato Ni(II) complexes have been synthesized, and their structure has been confirmed by an X-ray analysis of complex 4e. These compounds are active catalysts for the polymerization of ethylene under mild conditions in the presence of a phosphine scavenger such as Ni(COD)_2 or B(C_6F_5)_3.
