Abstract : The search for efficient switchable catalysts is a challenging yet appealing task in polymer science as it could pave the road-to tailor-made block co-polymers. In this context, an elegant strategy relies on exploiting the reactivity of metal complexes featuring a redox-active center (Iocated either on the supporting ligand or the metal itself) to differentiate between two monomers. ln this contribution will be presented and discussed computational mechanistic results, carried out in close collaboration with the Diaconescu group at UCLA, on the use of redox switchable catalysts for the ring opening polymerization of cyclic esters with lanthanide-based catalysts.
