Abstract

Herein, we report a series of highly active Al(III)-complexes based on a novel hybrid ligand: the catalen. Their application in the production of polylactide under both solution, and industrially preferred melt conditions, is demonstrated. Potential structural diversification to broaden initiator scope is discussed.
