Abstract OSSO-type dibenzyl zirconiumIV complexes 9 and 10 possessing aryl substituents ortho to the phenoxide moieties ortho substituents, phenyl and 2,6-dimethylphenyl Dmp were synthesized and characterized. Upon activation with dMAO dried methylaluminoxane, complex 9 was found to promote highly isospecific styrene polymerizations mm = 97.5%–99% with high molecular weights Mw up to 181,000 g·mmol−1. When the Dmp-substituted pre-catalyst 10-dMAO system was used, the highest activity, over 7700 g·mmol10−1·h−1, was recorded involving the formation of precisely isospecific polystyrenes of mm more than 99%.
