Over the last 55 years, telomerization was extensively studied in the feld of homogeneous catalysis using various catalyst systems, dienes and nucleophiles. The term „telomerization“ represents the oligomerization of 1,3-dienes with help of a nucleophile under the influence of a transition metal and is a promising approach of a C-C-linking reaction with a 100 % atom effiency. Based on this approach, single-site catalysts represent interesting alternative catalyst systems that combine the advantages of homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts. Due to the variety of products, a wide range of useful chemicals can be produced using telomerization. Isoprene in particular is a promising reactant, as it can be obtained from biomass and is the basic building block of terpenes, one of the most important phytochemicals.
