Real‐time Analysis of a Working Triethylaluminium‐Modified Cr/Ti/SiO2 Ethylene Polymerization Catalyst with In Situ Infrared Spectroscopy

A diffuse reflectance infrared Fourier-transform (DRIFT) study has been conducted at 373 K and 1 bar on an industrial Cr/Ti/SiO2 Phillips-type catalyst modified with, and without, triethylaluminium (TEAl) as co-catalyst. The reaction rate of the polymerization of ethylene, as monitored by the increase in the methylene stretching band of the growing… CONTINUE READING
