α-Diimine complexes of transition metals for the polymerisation of lower α-olefins
(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 ...
Synthesis and characterization of homo- and copolymers of a-olefins using metallocene catalysts
(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 ...
Polymer synthesis from 3-methylbutene-1
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 1993)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Two homopolymers of 3-methylbutene-1 were synthesized with different cocatalyst/catalyst ratios of the Zlegler-Natta catalyst system. The 3-methylbutene-1 homopolymers were characterized as fully ...
