Abstract

This paper presents an experimental kinetic study of the polymerization of propylene in liquid monomer with a high activity catalyst. The influences of the concentration of hydrogen and the molar ratios of the catalyst, cocatalyst, and electron donor on the activation period, the maximum activity, the yield, and the decay behavior have been investigated at a temperature of 42°C using a relatively simple kinetic model. On the basis of the experimental data, the reaction rate has been modeled as a function of the hydrogen concentration, the molar ratio of cocatalyst and titanium, and the molar ratio of the electron donor and the cocatalyst.
