Abstract

Abstract Reaction of CrCl 3(THF) 3 with rac-Li 2(binol) (binol=1,1′-bi-2-naphtholate) gave a new chromium(III) complex, [Li(THF)] 3[Cr(binol) 3]·3(toluene) ( 1). The X-ray crystallographic structure of 1 revealed its propeller-like structure similar to those of the reported rare earth analogues. The complex 1 showed moderate catalytic activities for ethylene polymerization upon activation with modified methylaluminoxane (MMAO) and with diethylaluminum chloride. When 1 was supported on the silica surface, activity increased to two times of homogeneous 1/MMAO system.
