Description

The manufacture of polyolefins by metallocene catalysts represents a revolution in the polymer industry. The first, patent for a metallocene catalyst was filed in 1980 but it has been the last five years that have seen a dramatic increase in the volume of research into metallocenes and the maturing of metallocene technology. With contributions from leading experts from the US, Canada, Italy, Scandinavia, Germany and Japan, Metallocene-based Polyolefins gives comprehensive coverage of all areas of metallocene technology: catalyst structure, comonomer incorporation, polymerization mechanisms and conditions, reactor configurations, special properties, rheological and processing behaviour, comparison with conventional polyolefins and fields of application. An essential book for plastics engineers, polymer chemists, physicists, materials scientists and all those working in the plastics manufacturing and processing industries.
