Abstract: This review article describes developments in chiral metallocenes as polymerization catalysts focusing on C2 symmetric ansa-zirconocene complexes. Selective synthesis of rac-isomers of ansa-zirconocenes are surveyed. Isospecific polymerizations of propylene catalyzed by chiral zirconocenes are summarized. Advanced series of polymerizations by chiral metallocenes such as asymmetric polymerization and polymerization of polar monomers are also introduced.
Keywords: Chiral Metallocene Catalysts; Polymerization Catalysts; Isotactic Polypropylene; Asymmetric Polymerization; Isotactic Poly(Methyl Methacrylate)
