POLYOLEFINS: Ethylene Polymerization Over Ph2C(Cp)(2,7-t-Bu2Flu)ZrCl2 Supported On SiO2-MAO

Emilio Casas, Beatriz Paredes, Jose María Escola,* Carlos Martin, Rafael van Grieken

Ethylene polymerization over heterogeneous [Ph2C(Cp)(2,7-t-Bu2Flu)ZrCl2] supported on SiO2-MAO is investigated. At 8 bar, the polyethylenes show molecular weights above 400 000 g ⋅ mol-1. With hydrogen, the activity decreases while with 1-butene, the activity is higher than in the homopolymerization.
