Abstract

Co- and ter-polymerization of ethylene with Fischer-Tropsch derived olefins having odd carbon number and branched olefins are investigated. A method of preparation of a robust, high productivity Ziegler-Natta catalyst suitable for ethylene co-polymerization with Fischer Tropsch olefin is reviewed. In supporting titanium tetrachloride, an attempt was made to control the titanium oxidation state. The resulting experimental data were fitted to a sub-sites model that associates titanium oxidation state with catalyst activity.
