A series of titanium bis(amidinate) complexes containing pendant arms as one of the amidinate N substituents have been prepared and studied in the polymerization of propylene after their activation with MAO and other cocatalysts. The type of pendant arm greatly influences the reactivity and stereospecificity of the resulting polymers. The effect of the cocatalyst nature, its amount, and the time of the reaction have a dramatic effect on the reactivity of a titanium bis(amidinate) bis(dimethylamido) precatalyst containing a furyl group at the pendant arm.
