The mono(salicylaldiminato) complexes Ti{3-tBu-2-(O)C6H3CH==N(R)}Cl3(THF) (where R = C6H5, C6F5) react with the metallated pyrrolylaldiminato ligand, K[2-(C6H5NCH)C4H3N], to afford the first examples of hybrid salicylaldiminato-ligated octahedral titanium complexes; the pre-catalysts give from very high to extremely high ethene polymerisation productivities when activated with MAO.
