Leskelä, Markku terms-of-use eng Mutikainen, Ilpo Kettunen, Mika Syntheses of new tetradentate ligands, containing a bianiline backbone and two additional heterocyclic N-donors, and of chiral zirconium complexes containing these ligands as dianions are reported. Crystal structures of some of these complexes show a preference for coordinating the two remaining ligands in a trans- rather than cis-orientation. Nevertheless, these complexes are moderately active in MAO-activated olefin polymerization in toluene solution at 50 °C. With propene, partly isotactic polypropene (55% mmmm) is obtained. These observations indicate that in cationic species generated in these reaction systems, the growing polymer chain and the olefin substrate occupy cis-coordination sites, while the heterocyclic N ligands adopt a screw-like trans orientation suitable to favor one of the enantiofacial orientations of the entering olefin substrate. 2013-06-20T15:01:26Z Brintzinger, Hans-Herbert 2013-06-20T15:01:26Z Schaper, Frank Leskelä, Markku Mutikainen, Ilpo Vedder, Christoph Chiral zirconium complexes with bianiline-based N<sub>4</sub>-donor ligands Vedder, Christoph Organometallics ; 23 (2004), 16. - S. 3800-3807 2004 Brintzinger, Hans-Herbert Schaper, Frank Kettunen, Mika
