Abstract

Different mixed ligand lanthanocene complexes along with Al(i-Bu)_3 are capable of synthesizing partially syndiotactic high molecular weight polymethylmethacrylate. The Schiff base derivative of mixed ligand lanthanocene complexes (1-4) showed better efficiency (Mv = 227 \times 10^3-354 \times 10^3) compared to the methoxyethylindenyl derivative of mixed ligand lanthanocene complexes (5-9) (Mv = 72 \times 10^3, 172 \times 10^3). The effects of the catalyst, temperature, catalyst/MMA molar ratio, and catalyst/Al(i-Bu)_3 molar ratio on the polymerization of MMA at 60 °C suggested that ligand size and radius of rare earth metals play an important role in determining the activity of the catalyst.
