Abstract

The synthesis and characterisation of some new nickel(II) macrocyclic complexes of the 'lacunar' type have been performed where the ligand has, as part of the ligand superstructure, either 4-vinylphenyl or allyl groups capable of undergoing polymerisation reactions with selected comonomers. The n.m.r. spectra of a number of these new complexes show them to be fluxional on the n.m.r. time-scale and the nature of this fluxional behaviour is discussed. Some copolymerisation reactions of these complexes, with styrene or methyl methacrylate comonomers, have been performed.
