Global Polymerization Catalysts Market:
Traditionally, polymerization of a-olefins was done by radical polymerization. The problem with the technique was the formation of undesired allylic radicals leading to the branched polymers. For example, radical polymerization of propene gave branched polymers with large molecular weight distribution. Also, radical polymerization had no control over stereochemistry. The ZN catalyst overcomes these problems. The catalyst can give linear a-olefin polymers with high and controllable molecular weights. In addition, it makes the fabrication of polymers with specific tacticity possible. By controlling the stereochemistry of products, either syndiotactic or isotactic polymers can be achieved.
They catalyze a-olefins to produce various commercial polymers, like polyethylene, polypropylene, and Polybutene-1. Polyethylene and polypropylene are reported to be the top two widely used synthetic plastics globally. Among the polyethylene fabricated by ZN catalysts, there are three major classes which include high-density polyethylene (HDPE), linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), and ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE).
HDPE, a linear homopolymer, is widely applied in garbage containers, detergent bottles, and water pipes because of its high tensile strength. Compared with HDPE, whose branching degree is quite low, LLDPE has many short branches. Its better toughness, flexibility, and stress-cracking resistance make it suitable for materials like cable coverings, bubble wrap.
UHMWPE is polyethylene with a molecular weight between XX and XX million. This material is extremely tough and chemically resistant. Therefore, it is often used to make gears and artificial joints. Increasing production of polymer resin is the primary factor that is driving the market growth.
ZN catalysts are effective for polymerization of a-Olefins (ethylene, propylene) and some dienes (butadiene, isoprene). However, they don’t work for some other monomers, such as 1.2 disubstituted double bonds. Vinyl chloride cannot be polymerized by ZN catalyst either because free radical vinyl polymerization is initiated during the reaction. Another situation where ZN catalysts don’t work is when the substrate is an acrylate. The reason is, ZN catalysts often initiate anionic vinyl polymerization in those monomers.
