Recent progress on nickel-based complex pre-catalysts is reviewed herein. The ethylene oligo-/polymerization behaviour is discussed in terms of the variation of the complex models bearing different kinds of ligand sets. These discussions focus mainly on the influence that the different substituents present have on the observed catalytic activity, the results of which can guide the design of new target structures possessing high ethylene activity.
