Abstract

In this review, we discuss the use of titanium complexes bearing either bridged diphenolate or calix[n]arene (n = 4, 6, 8) ligation, in the formation of plastics from α-olefins or via the ring opening polymerization (ROP) of cyclic esters. The syntheses, molecular structures and catalytic behaviour of these systems are discussed, as well as where possible, the properties of the resultant polymers.
