POLYOLEFINS: Bimodality Criterion for the Chemical Composition Distribution of Ethylene/1-Olefin Copolymers: Theoretical Development and Experimental Validation

POLYOLEFINS: Bimodality Criterion for the Chemical Composition Distribution of Ethylene/1-Olefin Copolymers: Theoretical Development and Experimental Validation

Kanyanut Narkchamnan, Siripon Anantawaraskul,* João B.P. Soares

The bimodality criterion for chemical composition distribution of ethylene/1-olefin copolymers is developed and validated theoretically with simulation data and experimentally with crystallization analysis fractionation (CRYSTAF) and crystallization elution fractionation (CEF). The CCD bimodality criterion derived herein could be useful for determining the appropriate recipe to synthesize copolymer blends with desired CCD characteristics.
