A (phosphine-sulfonate)palladium(II) system catalyzes the copolymerization of ethene with a variety of styrene derivatives, including those with oxygen functionalities. The copolymerizations also proceed in protic solvents, including water, allowing metal-mediated emulsion copolymerization of ethene and styrene.
