Tie me catalyst down, support: A selective homogeneous chromium-based ethene trimerization catalyst is heterogenized by immobilization on a functionalized polymer support. The immobilized catalyst displays good selectivity towards 1-hexene, and retains high activity for long times on-stream, combining advantages of homogeneous and heterogeneous catalyst systems.
