Reaction between 3-But-2-(OSiMe3)C6H3CH=N(2,6-R2C6H3) (where R = H (1a) or Pri (1b)) and TiCl4(THF)2 affords the octahedral complexes Ti{3-But-2-(O)C6H3CH=N(2,6-R2C6H3)}Cl3(THF) while in the absence of THF 1b reacts with TiCl4 to give the binuclear complex [Ti{3-But-2-(O)C6H3CH=N(2,6-Pri2C6H3)}Cl(µ–Cl)3TiCl3]; the complexes give good productivities for ethene polymerisation when activated with MAO.
