Zwitterionic Catalyst Composition for Olefin Polymerization

Tech ID: 21389 / UC Case 2006-268-0

Brief Description

A composition for a zwitterionic catalyst applicable to olefin polymerization.

Background

With the discovery of new transition metal-based catalysts for polymerization still in its early stages, there is a need for new and improved versions of these catalysts to further the polymerization field.

Description

Researchers at the University of California, Santa Barbara have developed a composition for a zwitterionic catalyst applicable to olefin polymerization. This catalyst presents high activities, is stable, and resulting polyethylene and polypropylene products are high in molecular weight.

Advantages

  • High density polyethylene and polypropylene products
  • High activities
  • Stable active species

Applications

  • Polyethylene/Polypropylene Formation
  • Olefin Polymerization
  • Olefin Co-Polymerization
  • Polymer/Co-Polymer Formation
