Bi- and tri-dentate imino-based iron and cobalt pre-catalysts for ethylene oligo-/polymerization

Iron and cobalt pre-catalysts for ethylene reactivity are reviewed in terms of the influence of the ligand (bi- or tri-dentate) framework on the catalytic performance. Highly linear products ranging from oligomers to high molecular weight polymers result.
