The effects of various second metals in the impregnation solution have been investigated. The polymerization performance in terms of activity and branching is highly depended on the electronegativity of second metal. Bimetallic catalysts containing second metal with low electronegativity improved not only the activity but also the branching ability in ethylene polymerization.
