Abstract

Aluminum complexes of enantiomerically pure aminomethylpyrrolidine-based salalen ligands and their application in the stereoselective polymerization of lactide are described. Poly(lactic acid) featuring the new gradient isotactic multiblock microstructure was synthesized by isoselective catalysts, which operate by a combination of enantiomorphic-site and chain-end control mechanisms.
