Metallocene - Catalyzed Polymers: Materials, Properties, Processing & Marketsby Brian L. Haber
Synopses & Reviews
It has been estimated that within just ten years, over half of all polyolefins will be made by using metallocene catalysts. This ground-breaking volume from PDL brings togetherùfor the first timeùwork from dozens of world-renowned experts on the subject. Fifty chapters of peer-reviewed content offer insights into applications in automotive components, food packaging, insulating films, non-woven fabrics and medical markets, among others.
Book News Annotation:
Describes advances during the previous three to four years in metallocene catalysts for olefin polymerization, with 47 technical paper representing most of the companies active in the field and a number of academic groups. The topics include economic factors in producing metallocene and perfluorinated boron co-catalysts, mixed metallocenes for designer polymers, the morphology of ethylene-octene metallocene copolymers at low to very low density, characterizing the melt relaxation behavior of metallocene polyethylenes, the injection molding of glass fiber reinforced syndiotactic polystyrene, preparing metallocene plastomer modified high-flow thermoplastic olefins, and new polyethylenes for targeted performance based on applications.
