|Outline of Final Research Achievements
By use of the catalyst bearing a phosphine oxide group (C5Me4SiMe2CH2P(O)Ph2)Sc(CH2SiMe3)2, the alternating copolymerizations of IP with HPD have been achieved for the first time, in which HPD is completely cyclized to the methylcyclohexane units. We found that cationic half-sandwich yttrium alkyl complexes can catalyze the addition of benzylic C-H bonds of various 2,6-dialkyl-substituted pyridines to a variety of olefins such as 1-hexene and styrenes, to afford new alkylated pyridine derivatives. By using the half-sandwich scandium diaminobenzyl complex (C5Me4SiMe3)Sc(CH2C6H4NMe2-o)2 with borate [Ph3C][B(C6F5)4], the syndiospecific chain transfer polymerization of styrene proceeded efficiently via the ortho-C-H bond activation of anisoles, affording the corresponding end-ortho-anisyl-functionalized syndiotactic polystyrenes.
