Group 1 and 2 cyclic (alkyl)(amino)carbene complexes

Author affiliations


The first examples of cyclic (alkyl)(amino)carbene (CAAC) ligands bound to electropositive metal centres (K, Mg, Sr and Ba) have been isolated and characterised. Preliminary studies demonstrate that all complexes are active for polar monomer polymerisation under ambient conditions affording desirable hydroxyl-terminated telechelic polymers.
