Synthesis, structural characterization, and preliminary reactivity studies of the title compounds are reported. The ethylene polymerization and diene cyclization activities that these complexes have shown are unprecedented for neutral molecules of the type X3MR (X = amide, alkoxide, or siloxide; M = group 4 metal; R = alkyl or hydride).
