Yttrium alkyl complexes with a sterically demanding benzamidinate ligand: synthesis, structure and catalytic ethene polymerisation

Author affiliations

Abstract

The benzamidinate yttrium dialkyl complexes [PhC(NAr)2]Y(CH2SiMe3)2(THF)n (Ar = 2,6-diisopropylphenyl; n = 1, 2) were prepared; when activated with [PhNMe2H][B(C6F5)4], the species with n = 1 polymerises ethene to polyethene with a narrow polydispersity.
