Abstract

A new borane (B-H) in situ chain transfer reaction in metallocene-catalyzed olefin polymerization was established. The obtained chemistry provides a convenient and efficient route to prepare borane-terminated polyolefins that are very valuable intermediates for preparing functionalized polyolefins with a polar end group or diblock copolymer containing a polyolefin and functional (polar) polymer segments.
