The use of a phenol-modified methylaluminoxane (MAO) cocatalyst for the synthesis of ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene with a reduced number of entanglements is presented. The research aims, with the help of rheological analyses, to study the effects that a cocatalyst modifier has on the catalytic system performance and on the polymer produced. The results suggest that on using the phenol-modified MAO as cocatalyst, a higher number of active sites are obtained.
