TOPIC: Organometallic Catalysis.
Single site catalysts for olefin polymerization.
No. FT-TA3/078/TANDEM, Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic (associated contractor - project leader is affiliated with another institution)
The project deals with the basic research in the field of synthesis of single site metallocene and nonmetallocene catalysts and their applications in specific styrene and olefin polymerizations and copolymerizations. A series of novel monocyclopentadienyltitanium complexes and polymer supports will be synthesized and the catalytic systems prepared thereof will be evaluated for the syndiospecific polymerization of styrene.
Key words: single site catalysts; titanium; zirconium; cationic complexes; polymer supports; bimetallic complexes; polymerization; syndiotactic polystyrene; polyethylene.
Project co-ordinator: VĂAnCh a.s.
