Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A simple Co(ii)-based amine-borane dehydropolymerisation catalyst system is reported that operates at low loadings, to selectively give (H2BNMeH)n polymer on scale, with catalyst control over Mn, narrow dispersities and low residual metal content.
