Abstract

The oligomerisation of ethylene to linear alpha olefins is an important
industrial process for the production of polyethylene co-monomers, plasticizers,
surfactants and waxes. With the ever increasing market demand for short chain
linear alpha olefins (1-butene, 1-hexene and 1-octene) there has been intensive
research in both industry and academia on methods to selectively oligomerise
ethylene to form only the short chain fractions. As such, a range of novel catalysts
based on titanium and chromium have been synthesised and characterised. Their
behaviour in ethylene oligomerisation and polymerisation has been studied. In most
cases, the mechanism of oligomer formation has been investigated.
