Tert-butylalumoxanes: Synthetic Analogs for Methylalumoxane (MAO) and New Catalytic Routes to Polyolefins and Polyketones
HARVARD UNIV CAMBRIDGE MA DEPT OF CHEMISTRY
Pagination or Media Count:
Alkyl alumoxanes, the products from the partial hydrolysis of aluminum trialkyls, have been shown to be active catalysts and co-catalysts for a variety of polymerization processes. Despite industrial useage, no one has been able to isolate individual compounds and demonstrate a structure activity correlation. The purpose of this study is to a isolate single alumoxane species, b determine the function of alumoxanes in Ziegler Natta Catalysis, and c develop new polymers, employing these catalysts.
