  • Publication number: 20200283553
    Abstract: A process of preparing a solid catalyst component for the production of polypropylene includes a) dissolving a halide-containing magnesium compound in a mixture, the mixture including an epoxy compound, an organic phosphorus compound, and a hydrocarbon solvent to form a homogenous solution; b) treating the homogenous solution with an organosilicon compound during or after the dissolving step; c) treating the homogenous solution with a first titanium compound in the presence of a first non-phthalate electron donor, and an organosilicon compound, to form a solid precipitate; and d) treating the solid precipitate with a second titanium compound in the presence of a second non-phthalate electron donor to form the solid catalyst component, where the process is free of carboxylic acids and anhydrides.

  • Publication number: 20200270381
    Abstract: The present disclosure is generally directed to polyolefin polymers, such as polypropylene homopolymers, and propylene-ethylene copolymers that have improved flow properties. In one embodiment, the polymers can be produced using a solid catalyst component that includes a) dissolving a halide-containing magnesium compound in a mixture, the mixture including an epoxy compound, an organic phosphorus compound, and a hydrocarbon solvent to form a homogenous solution; b) treating the homogenous solution with an organosilicon compound during or after the dissolving step; c) treating the homogenous solution with a first titanium compound in the presence of a first non-phthalate electron donor, and an organosilicon compound, to form a solid precipitate; and d) treating the solid precipitate with a second titanium compound in the presence of a second non-phthalate electron donor to form the solid catalyst component, where the process is free of carboxylic acids and anhydrides.

  • Publication number: 20200247920
    Abstract: A process for preparing a solid pre-catalyst component for use in olefinic polymerization includes dissolving a magnesium chloride in an alcohol and optionally adding water to form a first solution having a water content of about 0.5 mmol water per mol MgCl2 to about 100 mmol water per mol MgCl2; contacting the first solution with a first titanium compound to form the solid pre-catalyst component; and treating the solid pre-catalyst component with a hydrocarbon or halogenated hydrocarbon solvent, optionally containing a second titanium compound.

  • Patent number: 10273321
    Abstract: Solid catalyst components for use in olefin polymerization, olefin polymerization catalyst systems containing the solid catalyst components, methods of making the solid catalyst components and the catalyst systems, and methods of polymerizing and copolymerizing olefins involving the use of the catalyst systems. The solid catalyst components are formed by (a) dissolving a magnesium compound and an auxiliary intermediate electron donor in at least one first solvent to form a solution; (b) contacting a first titanium compound with said solution to form a precipitate of the magnesium compound and the first titanium compound; (c) washing the precipitate with a mixture of a second titanium compound and at least one second solvent and optionally an electron donor at a temperature of up to 90° C.; and (d) treating the precipitate with a mixture of a third titanium compound and at least one third solvent at 90-150° C. to form a solid catalyst component.
