Abstract

This chapter highlights the most recent and representative results on the use of organoaluminum compounds in polymerization catalysis with a special emphasis on discrete Al-incorporating catalysts. The first part of this contribution summarizes recent and noteworthy developments on well-defined Al-based initiators for the controlled (and stereocontrolled) polymerization of various monomers including isobutene, styrene, epoxides, methyl methacrylate, cyclic esters, and cyclic carbonates. The second part discusses the latest significant advances on the synthesis and structural characterization of polynuclear organoaluminum/transition (and f-block) metal complexes relevant to Ziegler-Natta-type catalysis.
