The formation of CH-type catalysts has been investigated by high-resolution and solid-state NMR. These catalysts are prepared from a soluble MgCl2 and 2-ethyl-1-hexanol adduct (MgCl2·3EH) by reaction with phthalic anhydride (PA) to form dioctylphthalate (DOP) and then with TiCl4 in the presence of di-i-butylphthalate (BP). In the model systems MgCl2·3EH/PA, MgCl2/BP, and MgCl2/TiCl4/BP, the ester is complexed with MgCl2 and /or TiCl4 in two or more states. Only single-ester C=O and OCH2 resonances are seen in TiCl4/BP, probably due to exchange of ester coordinations. CH-catalysts prepared by three different procedures exhibit a single mode of bonding for the ester. The chemical shift values are consistent for ester complexed with MgCl2. The most active and stereoselective catalyst has the most shielded chemical shift values for the C=O and - OCH2 - carbons, shortest TH1 and TH1p, and longest TCH relaxation times. These parameters change monotonically with the decrease of activity and stereoselectivity of the catalyst preparation. © 1993 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
