Olefin polymerisation catalysts: when perfection is not enough

Author affiliations

Abstract

Despite decades of thorough mechanistic investigations, it is still hard to predict the activity of a novel olefin polymerisation catalyst, even when the precursor is a well-defined molecular entity. In the present study, we highlight the crucial importance of activation entropy on the polymerisation rate and how weak interactions of the catalytic species with electron donating species in the reaction pool can ultimately lower the activation free energy.
