N,N-Bis(diphospholyl)amine ligands for selective ethene oligomerisation catalysis

phosphole

A paper has been published in ChemCatChem, describing our recent work in chromium complexes of diphosphazane (PNP) ligands containing phosphole-based substituents, that are excellent catalysts for the selective oligomerisation of ethylene to 1-hexene and 1-octene.  More details can be found here.
