U.S. Patent No. 6,809,209

Nitrogen-containing group-13 anionic compounds for olefin polymerization


The invention addresses an composition of matter comprising a cation [Ct]+ and an anion [A]-, the anion comprises a core Group-13 element bound to partially or completely fluorinated fluoroaryl ligands, at least one of the fluoroaryl ligands is substituted with a Group-15 element that has been rendered essentially inert for subsequent chemical reaction through its unbonded electron pair by substituting an electron-withdrawing group on it. [Ct]+ may be selected from anilinium and ammonium cations, trityl carbenium cations, Group-11 metal cations, silylium cations, the cations of the hydrated salts of Group-1 or -2 metals, and derivatives of the foregoing anilinium, ammonium, trityl carbenium, and silylium cations containing C1-C20 hydrocarbyl, hydrocarbylsilyl, or hydrocarbylamine substituents for one or more hydrogen atoms of said cations. The compositions can be used to activate olefin polymerization catalysts, and can be prepared to dissolve in aliphatic solvents. Syntheses and polymerization are illustrated.
