Rare-Earth Metal Complexes Supported By Nitrogen-Containing Ligands In Olefin Polymerization
Published 2011 · Chemistry
In this review the recent developments in the synthesis of rare-earth metal complexes active in catalysis of olefin polymerization are summarized. Alkyl (neutral and ate), cationic alkyl and hydrido complexes supported by nitrogen-containing ligands are considered. The polymerization-active complexes are classified according to monomer (ethylene, α-olefin, styrene), type of compound (neutral alkyl, cationic alkyl, ate-alkyl, hydrido) and the number of nitrogen atoms in supporting ligands. The properties of obtained polyolefins are discussed.
