Abstract

Mono- and tetranuclear titanatranes bearing the $C_3$-symmetric aminotriol ligand $N(CH2CHPhOH)_3$ were synthesized. The structure of the tetratitanium compound was determined by single-crystal X-ray crystallography. The new titanatrane derivative included four aminotriols ligated to four titanium atoms, forming a tetranuclear unit with \mu$_2-O$ and \mu$_3-O$ bridges. The mono- and tetranuclear titanatranes were capable of polymerizing ethylene with a turnover frequency of up to 375 kg of PE/((mol of catalyst) h bar). The polymers obtained had $T_m \approx$ 133 C, indicative of linear polyethylene, and were further characterized by NMR. The ethylene polymerization activities of mono- and tetranuclear titanium catalysts were related by a factor of 4, indicating possibly the formation of a common single-site active species.
