The reaction zone is operated under reaction conditions suitable for producing the high viscosity polyalphaolefin product. The preferred high viscosity polyalphaolefin has a kinematic viscosity exceeding about 8 cSt and is the reaction product of the trimerization, oligomerization, or polymerization of an alpha olefin or a mixture of one or more product thereof. The high viscosity polyalphaolefins are useful as lubricants or lubricant additives.

  • Publication number: 20090258803
    Abstract: Copolymers made with quasi-living polyolefins and unsaturated acidic reactants, dispersants using same, and methods of making same are provided. Under one aspect, a copolymer of an unsaturated acidic reactant and high molecular weight polyolefin, wherein the polyolefin comprises an exo-olefin terminated quasi-living polymeric product, is provided. The quasi-living polymeric product is formed, e.g., by forming a quasi-living cationic polyolefin under suitable quasi-living conditions, and contacting the cationic polyolefin with an agent selected to convert the cationic polyolefin to the exo-olefin terminated quasi-living polymeric product. The cationic polyolefin can be formed, e.g.
