Half-titanocenes containing imidazolin-2-iminato ligands, CpTiCl2[1,3-tBu2(CHN)2C[DOUBLE BOND]N], exhibit remarkable catalytic activities with better norbornene (NBE) incorporations for ethylene copolymerization with norbornene in the presence of the methylaluminoxane (MAO) cocatalyst. This affords high-molecular-weight copolymers with uniform molecular weight distributions and high NBE contents (high glass transition temperature, Tg = 230–258 °C). The microstructure analysis of the poly(ethylene-co-NBE)s suggests the formation of random copolymers, including two and three NBE repeating units.
