Nitrile-ligated copper(II) and zinc(II) complexes comprising (fluoroalkoxy)aluminates as weakly coordinating anions have been successfully applied for the synthesis of the highly reactive polyisobutylene. A detailed study of the catalytic system showed that the polymerization reaction is dominated by transfer reactions that lead to the high content of exo double bonds while propagation proceeds via conventional cationic polymerization.
