Accompanying the ever-increasing performance of polymerization catalysts used to produce polyethylene (PE) is a general increase in catalyst sensitivity to impurities in ethylene feed. These can impact the length and branching of polymer chains as well as interchain bonding, which in turn determine...

Reactions and Separations
Daniel G. Loffler
Age and life are not suitable parameters to compare catalyst performance. The proper ones are the rate of reaction and the rate of deactivation.
