Redox control of a polymerization catalyst by changing the oxidation state of the metal center

Abstract

The activity of cerium alkoxide complexes supported by a Schiff base ligand was controlled using redox reagents during the ring-opening polymerization of L-lactide. The rate of L-lactide polymerization was modified by switching in situ between the cerium(III) and cerium(IV) species.
