Di(1-(propyl)-2,2,5,5-tetramethyl-1-aza-2,5-disilacylopentane)magnesium was synthesized and used as chain transfer agent for the ethylene polymerization in the presence of a neodymocene precursor. The polymerization was shown to be governed by a catalyzed chain growth process (CCG) on magnesium, allowing the quantitative formation of ammonium or amine functionalized polyethylene (PE) chains. The structure of these chains was shown by 1H and 13C NMR analyses. MALDI-ToF mass spectrometry was successfully used to confirm the structure predicted by the CCG mechanism. The additional formation of telechelic PE chains carrying an ammonium and either a diethyldithiocarbamate or an iodo moiety as end groups was shown after a simple deactivation of the polymerization medium with disulfiram or molecular iodine, respectively.
