Abstract

Reaction products of silica with solutions of dibutylmagnesium compounds can react with titanium tetrachloride to form free-flowing solids. When prepared in proper ratios, these solids are highly active as ethylene polymerization catalysts.1 Active sites are bonded to the silica, and in the slurry synthesis of polyethylene, polymer grows associated with silica particles giving control over replication.
