Control of the polyethylene structure by the transition metal, Lewis bases and co-catalysts during the homogeneous and heterogeneous polymerizations

Project: Research

Description

By using quantum chemistry procedures, we are interpreting the polymerization reactions of ethylene. We are especially interested in the effects of the transition metal, the Lewis basis and the co-catalyst.
