Abstract

Summary: Treatment of racemic bis(acetylacetonato) group 4 complexes with MAO yields cationic complexes acting as active catalysts for the polymerization of propylene under high monomeric concentrations. By the appropriate choice of metal and solvent the properties of the polymer products can be tailored, allowing the formation of either elastomer to highly isotactic polypropylene.
