Abstract

High activity Ziegler-Natta catalysts, based on activated magnesium chloride, for the low pressure polymerization of ethylene, have been thoroughly studied in order to find significant rules to drive catalyst synthesis and forecast its performance. The catalyst is actually the key not only to controlling the main polymer properties but also to improving economics and achieving the full potential of the most advanced polymerization processes.
