Boryl-substituted Zirconocene Dichloride Complexes as Catalyst Precursors for Homogeneous Ethylene Polymerization

Alexandra Kestel-Jakob and Helmut G. Alt

The synthesis and characterization of 16 new boryl-substituted zirconocene dichloride complexes are reported. After activation with methyl aluminoxane (MAO) these complexes are catalysts for homogeneous ethylene polymerization. The combination of these complexes with nickel catalysts containing Lewis basic substituents produces polymers with bimodal molecular weight distributions.
