Ziegler-Natta Catalysis of polyethylene polymerization reactions

Project: Research

Description

By using quantum chemistry procedures, we modelize the different reaction steps of ethylene polymerization on Ziegler-Natta catalysts. We are interested in monomer insertion, hydrogen transfer and the effects related to the nature of the catalyst.
