The importance of Lewis bases in determining catalyst performance for polyolefin synthesis, above all when the catalyst is formed by MgC12-supported Titanium compounds is well known.1 Most of the progress recently achieved in polyolefin synthesis is due undoubtedly to the fact that suitable Lewis bases have been used. The addition of the base to Alalkyl has several effects, in terms of catalyst stereospecificity, polymerization kinetics and polymer molecular weight.
