Abstract

A new titanium(IV) complex bearing [ONO] type ligand has been synthesized, characterized, and employed as catalyst in homopolymerization and copolymerization of styrene and methyl methacrylate. In the presence of sodium tetraphenyl borate and sodium n-dodecyl sulfate (SDS), it exhibits moderate to high activity and afford ultrahigh molecular weight polymers. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
