Abstract

Linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) is produced from an ethylene-only feed over a tandem catalyst system consisting of a phenoxy–imine titanium trimerization catalyst and a silylene-linked cyclopentadienyl/amido titanium polymerization catalyst cosupported on the same methylaluminoxane/silica particles. The level of 1-hexene incorporation can be controlled by varying the ethylene pressure.
