Silica-anchored alkyl zirconium complexes [Zr]s-R (R = cyclooctyl, Pr or Me) have been generated by reaction of [Zr]s-H complexes with the relevant alkanes. Their stoichiometric reactivity towards molecules such as carbon monoxide and olefins was studied in order to estimate the potential of such systems to activate and functionalize alkanes catalytically.
