Synthesis of Asymmetric Tridentate Cobalt(II) Complex and Application in Ethylene Oligomerization
A kind of cobalt complex with asymmetric tridentate ligand was synthesized and used in ethylene oligomerization. The reaction temperature and Al/Co ratio had a great influence on the activities and distributions of the oligomer with methylaluminoxane as cocatalyst, and the main products were 1-butylene and hexene. A fast deactivation process was observed from the curve of the oligomerization kinetics.
