Scope of Olefin Polymerization Nickel Catalysts


In their report "Neutral single-component nickel (II) catalysts that tolerate heteroatoms" (21 Jan., p. 460), T. R. Younkin et al. describe the development of a family of polymerization catalysts that are tolerant of many functional groups and low-purity starting materials. Many of their observations are well in line with our results on bis(ylide)nickel- and palladium-based catalysts, which do not need a cocatalyst and work in the technologically relevant pressure and temperature ranges.
