Abstract

The synthesis of N-(1-(3,5-dimethylpyrazol-1-yl)ethylidene)-2,6-diisopropylaniline (1) and N-(1-(indazol-2-yl)ethylidene)-2,6-diisopropylaniline (2) allowed access to new transition metal complexes. When reacted with dibromo(2,2'-dimethoxyethylether)nickel(II) the complexes [NiBr2{N-(1-(3,5-dimethylpyrazol-1-yl)ethylidene)-2,6-diisopropylaniline}] (3) and [Ni2Br2(µ-Br)2{N-(1-(indazol-1-yl)ethylidene)-2,6-diisopropylaniline}2] (4) are yielded, respectively. The addition of MAO generates catalytically active species for the homopolymerization of ethylene. The polymer products were low molecular weight (3-6 K) and a monomodal molecular weight distribution, consistent with the presence of a single active site. In addition, the catalyst was found to efficiently oligomerize higher olefins to high molecular weights with narrow PDIs. © 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
