Cobalt and Nickel Complexes Bearing 2-(2-pyridyl)-Benzimidazole: Synthesis and Ethylene Oligomerization

Abstract

A series of cobalt and nickel complexes MLX2 (M=Co or Ni, X=Cl) bearing 2-(2-pyridyl)benzimidazole ligands were synthesized. Treatment of the complexes with methylaluminoxane (MAO) leads to active catalysts for ethylene oligomerization. The oligomers were olefins from C2 to C6.
