Treatment of the N–P ligand ArPN(SiMe3)2 with TiCl4 affords the imido-bridged binuclear titanium complex [TiCl2(THF)(µ-NArP)]2(ArP=m-C6H4PR2) which reacts with Ni(0) or Pd(II) to give heterotrinuclear compounds, while activation with methylaluminoxane generates a new type of imido-based ethene polymerisation catalyst that is tolerant of –PR2 functional groups.
