Abstract

Titanium (IV) precursors anchored to alkyl substituted polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) trisilanol and disilanol were prepared and characterized. These catalysts, formulated as [Ti-POSS(OOO)OPri, 1] and [Ti-(POSS(OO))2, 2], were found to be active in the polymerization of ethylene at high temperatures in combination with ethylaluminum sesquichloride (Et3Al2Cl3) as a co-catalyst. The polyethylene products so obtained are linear, crystalline and display narrow dispersities. The effect of various reaction parameters on the catalyst performance is described.
