Abstract

A well-defined, homogeneous catalyst, [(Ph)(2-(2′,6′-(OMe)2-C6H3)-C6H4)P(2-SO3-C6H4)]Ni(Ph)PPh3, in which a single, bulky ortho-biphenyl substituent on the chelating phosphine blocks one axial position, is very active for formation of linear polyethylene (Mn = 403 000 g mol−1, Mw/Mn = 1.87).
