Reaction of Na[VO(tBuO)4] (generatedin situfrom VOCl3and NaOtBu) withp-tert-butyltetrahomodioxacalix[6]areneH6(L1H6) afforded, after work-up (in MeCN), the mixed-metal complex [(VO)2(μ-O)Na2(L1)(MeCN)4]·5(MeCN) (1·5MeCN), whilst the oxo complex {[VO]4L1} (2·6MeCN) was isolatedviathe use of [VO(OnPr)3]. Reaction of L1H6with [V(Np-CH3C6H4)(OtBu)3] afforded the complex {[V(Np-CH3C6H4)]2L1} (3·7MeCN·0.5CH2Cl2). Use of similar methodology afforded the imido complexes {[V(Np-RC6H4)]2L1} (R = OMe (4); CF3(5); Cl (6); F (7)); on one occasion, reaction of [V(Np-CH3C6H4)(OEt)3] with L1H6afforded the product [VO(L2)]2·4MeCN (8·4MeCN) (L2= 2-(p-CH3-C6H4NCH)-4-tBu-C6H2O-6-CH2)-4-tBuC6H2OH) in which L1has been cleaved. For comparative catalytic ring opening polymerization (ROP) studies, the known complexes [VOL3] (L3= oxacalix[3]arene) (I), [V(Np-CH3-C6H4)L3]2(II), [Li(MeCN)4][V2(O)2Li(MeCN)(L6H2)2] (L6H6=p-tert-butylcalix[6]areneH6) (III) and [(VO)2L8H] (L8H8=p-tert-butylcalix[8]areneH8) (IV) have also been prepared. ROP studies, with or without external alcohol present, indicated that complexes1to8exhibited moderate to good conversions for ε-Cl, δ-VL and the co-polymerization thereof. Within the imido series, a positive influence was observed when electron withdrawing substituents were present. These systems afforded relatively low molecular weight products and were also inactive toward the ROP ofrac-lactide. In the case of ethylene polymerization, complexes3,5and7exhibited highest activity when screened in the presence of dimethylaluminium chloride/ethyltrichloroacetate; the activity of4was much lower. The products were highly linear polyethylene withMwin the range 74-120 × 103Da.
