Abstract

Vanadium phthalocyanine and porphyrin complexes, in conjunction with methylaluminoxane (MAO) or EtAlCl2 cocatalyst, have been found to catalyze the homopolymerization of ethene. In addition, the copolymerization of ethene with propene and 1-decene was achieved with the vanadium phthalocyanine complex and MAO. Nickel phthalocyanine complex was also found to catalyze the polymerization of ethene in the presence of MAO. However, only dimerization was observed when EtAlCl2 was used as the cocatalyst.
