Cover: Effective immobilization and activation of Cp2TiCl2 and other single-site olefin polymerization catalysts has been achieved using spherical supports of type MgCl2/AlRn(OEt)3-n, obtained by reaction of AlR3 with adducts of MgCl2 and ethanol. Polyethylene having spherical particle morphology and narrow molecular weight distribution was obtained, without the use of MAO or borate activators.
