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 synthe... Read More about Use of Titanium Complexes Bearing Diphenolate or Calix[n]arene Ligands in α-Olefin Polymerization and the ROP of Cyclic Esters.
