DescriptionIncluding recent advances and historically important catalysts, this book overviews methods for developing and applying polymerization catalysts – dealing with polymerization catalysts that afford commercially acceptable high yields of polymer with respect to catalyst mass or productivity.
• Contains the valuable data needed to reproduce syntheses or use the catalyst for new applications
• Offers a guide to the design and synthesis of catalysts, and their applications in synthesis of polymers
• Includes the information essential for choosing the appropriate reactions to maximize yield of polymer synthesized
• Presents new chapters on vanadium catalysts, Ziegler catalysts, laboratory homopolymerization, and copolymerization
