Abstract

Disclosed are novel catalysts, processes of synthesizing the catalysts and to olefin polymerization processes using the catalysts. The catalysts are cationic complexes comprising a Group 13 element and certain ligands. These compounds behave similarly to Ziegler-Natta catalysts but effectively catalyze the polymerization of olefins in the absence of any transition metal.
