Better olefin polymerization catalysts are needed in our quest for polymers with superior properties and better recyclability.

Metallocene catalysts hold great promises that are yet to be fulfilled. A major challenge in utilizing these catalysts is the discrepancy (and/or deterioration) in their performance when they are transformed from homogeneous to heterogeneous catalysts.

This project examines the kinetic effects resulting from supporting candidate industrial metallocene catalysts, and couples these insights with performance and activity studies in industrial settings.
