Synthesis and characterization of multinuclear complexes containing palladium and oxophilic metalsAmerican Chemical Society 241st National Meeting (2011)
Dinuclear transition metal complexes display distinct catalytic olefin polymerization activity as compared to their mononuclear counterparts. To further explore the use of multimetallic systems for polymerization, multinucleating ligand frameworks were developed for palladium. Diimine architectures with pendant nitrogen and oxygen donors have been prepared, and their ability to bind oxophilic metals - aluminum, zinc or titanium - and palladium has been investigated. The structures of mono-palladium species have been determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction or NMR spectroscopy. To date, structural characterization of the multinuclear complexes shows that the oxophilic metals are structurally or coordinatively saturated. These complexes have been tested for olefin polymerization catalysis and are active for the homopolymerization of ethylene.
