  • Patent number: 8541520
    Abstract: The method of making high-density polyethylene with titania-iron nanofillers involves mixing a TiO2/Fe titania-iron nanofiller with a vanadium (III) complex bearing salicylaldiminato ligands polymerization catalyst in a reactor. The reactor is then charged with toluene and heated to a temperature of about 30° C. Following heating, ethylene is fed into the reactor at a fixed pressure, and a methyl aluminum dichloride cocatalyst is added to initiate in situ polymerization. Polymerization is quenched to yield high-density polyethylene with titania-iron nanofillers, which is then washed and dried. Through the addition of a TiO2/Fe nanofiller, the molecular weight, the crystallinity and the melting temperature of high-density polyethylene are all increased, while the polydispersity index (PDI) is decreased.

  • Publication number: 20110201771
    Abstract: The synthetic production of cis-1,4-polyisoprene and other cis-1,4-polydienes is achieved by adding isoprene or other diene monomers to a natural rubber latex or washed rubber particles and utilizing various allylic pyrophosphate compounds. The natural rubber latex or washed rubber particles inherently contain an enzyme catalyst and desirably divalent metal cofactors therein and the polymerization can occur over a relatively wide temperature range. The process is believed to be a living carbocationic polymerization. The in vitro produced natural rubber polymers can contain from about 5 to about 30,000 repeat units and are essentially free of non-enzyme catalysts. The invention can be utilized to synthesize polyisoprenoids and precursors to form terpenes, vitamins, steroids, alkaloids, and the like.
