Synthesis of neutral nickel catalysts for ethylene polymerization – the influence of ligand size on catalyst stability


A facile synthesis of nickel salicylaldimine complexes with labile dissociating ligands is described. In addition to producing highly active ethylene polymerization catalysts, important insights into the effect of ligand size on catalyst stability and information on the mechanism of polymerization are provided.
