Abstract: New cyclic and acyclic ligands with a bis(phosphino)amine motif have been synthesized and extensively characterized. Their coordination behavior towards transition metals was investigated. The synthesized compounds were tested in the chromium catalyzed selective oligomerization of ethene. A correlation between ligand structure and product distribution could be found and was used for the development of a highly selective trimerization system.
