A new hybrid material featuring unique phenol grafting sites was used to immobilize tetrabenzylzirconium on silica. Fully characterized single-site cationic polymerization species were obtained by benzyl abstraction with B(C6F5)3 as activator. As a result of reduced surface interactions, the polymerization activities of the well-defined neutral and cationic species were up to four times higher.
