  • Patent number: 9012347
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a preparation method of a metallocene catalyst. More particularly, the present invention relates to a preparation method of a supported hybrid metallocene catalyst, including the steps of treating a support having a water content of 4 to 7% by weight with trialkyl aluminum at a predetermined temperature; supporting alkyl aluminoxane on the support; and supporting a metallocene compound on the alkyl aluminoxane-supported support. According to the present invention, it is possible to prepare a supported hybrid metallocene catalyst which shows a high activity in the polymerization of olefins and enables the preparation of polyolefins having a high bulk density, by a simple process.

  • Patent number: 9012359
    Abstract: Activating supports may be suitably prepared by the following procedure (a) providing a porous mineral oxide support material, (b) treating the support with a phosphorus-containing compound, (c) treating the support from step (b) with an organometallic compound, (d) heating the functionalized support from step (c) under an inert gas and then under an atmosphere comprising oxygen, (e) fluorinating the support with a fluorinating agent, and (f) recovering an activating support. The activating supports are suitable used in combination with single site catalysts for the polymerization of olefins. The supports are most preferably used in combination with metallocene complexes. The preparative route for the activating supports provides for supported polymerization catalyst systems having excellent activities.

  • Patent number: 8993823
    Abstract: A process for the metathesis of olefins has been developed. The process comprises contacting a hydrocarbon feedstock with a catalyst at metathesis conditions. The catalyst comprises a tungsten compound, which contains at least one tungsten-fluoro bond, dispersed or grafted onto a support. A specific example of the catalyst is the compound WOF(CH2CMe3)3 grafted onto a silica support. The feedstock comprises a first and a second olefin wherein the second olefin has a carbon number of at least two greater than the first olefin and the product is an olefin with a carbon number intermediate between the first and second olefin. Specifically the process produces propylene from ethylene and butylene.
