Abstract

This thesis addresses the chemistry of imidazole containing ligands, particularly
with respect to their nickel, iron and molybdenum complexes. The ability of many
of the nickel and iron complexes to support chain-building olefin insertion reactions
is described. The results are presented within the context of the current state-of-theart
late transition metal oligo-polymerisation catalysis via an extensive review of the
literature.
