Highly active aluminium catalysts for room temperature ring-opening polymerisation of rac-lactide

Author affiliations

Abstract

A new series of aluminium complexes bearing ‘catam’ ligands has been synthesised and fully characterised. They were found to exhibit high activity at room temperature for rac-lactide ring-opening polymerisation, a rather rare feature for aluminium-based catalysts.
