    • Adamantane copolymers 

      Coetzee, Liezel (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This study concerns the incorporation of adamantane containing monomers 3-(1-adamantyl)-1-propene and 1-(1-adamantyl)-4-vinylbenzene into ethene, propene and higher a-olefins using different catalytic ...

    • Novel α-olefin polymer systems 

      Siphuma, Lufuno (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2005-03)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: See fulltext for abstract

    • Synthesis and characterization of homo- and copolymers of a-olefins using metallocene catalysts 

      Luruli, Nyambeni (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2002-03)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This study comprises the synthesis and characterization of propene/lower a-olefin copolymers and a-olefm homopolymers using metallocene catalyst systems. Incorporation of a-olefin comonomer into the ...

    • α-Diimine complexes of transition metals for the polymerisation of lower α-olefins 

      Fullaway, Phillip V. (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2005-12)
      In this study several potential polymerisation catalysts were synthesised. This was accomplished by coordinating α-diimine ligands such as N,N'-diferrocenyldiazabutadiene (DFDAB), N,N'-dimesityldiazabutadiene (DMDAB) as ...
