POLYOLEFINS: Analysis of Slurry-Phase Co-Polymerization of Ethylene and 1-Butene by Ziegler–Natta Catalysts Part 1: Experimental Activity Profiles

John T. McCoy, Joao B. P. Soares, Randhir Rawatlal*

The activity of Ziegler–Natta catalysts for ethylene polymerization is studied, and a method developed to extract meaningful kinetic parameters from experimental data. Four model parameters are required to reproduce polymerization rate profiles for a range of laboratory experimental conditions.
