Abstract

(NPyC2OMe)8Zn10Et44-O)4 (1) has been synthesized in situ by hydrolysis of ZnEt2 in a one pot process and it was proved by applying X-ray structure analysis that the organozinc anilido-pyridinate moiety encapsulated the zinc oxide cluster, which demonstrated one self-assembled coordinate mode “Zn10O4”. Moreover, the catalytic activity was investigated and good activity for L-lactide and ε-caprolactone ring opening polymerization was observed with both living and controllable properties.
