Abstract

Di(ketoiminato)cobalt complexes have been employed for the alternating copolymerization of alkylene oxide and carbon dioxide. These complexes exhibited not only good catalytic activity for polycarbonate synthesis, but also an excellent selectivity for the formation of carbonate linkages without any ether linkage in the reaction of several alkylene oxides, especially for ethylene oxide.
