Polymer-Supported Ziegler-Natta Catalysts for the Polymerization of α-Olefins and Butadiene

Over the past ten years, we have developed a series of polymer-supported Lewis acid catalysts for use in such synthetic reactions as esterification, ketone formation and etherification etc.1-8 These catalysts exhibited very good catalytic activity. The catalysts were also used for cationic polymerization of styrene and α-methylstyrene10-11. A polymer-supported Ziegler-Natta catalyst, polystyrene-titanium chloride-diethylaluminum chloride (PS-TiCl4/Et2AlCl) for the polymerization of isoprene was further developed.12In this chapter two polymer-supported Ziegler-Natta catalysts, PS-TiCl4/Et2AlCl and poly (biphenylaminomethylstyrene)-titanium chloride diethylaluminum chloride (PDPAS- TiCl4/Et2AlCl) are reported. Their use in polymerization and copolymerization of ethylene, 1, 3-butadiene, isoprene and isobutylene, is also described.
