Vanadium-catalyzed Olefin Oligomerization, Polymerization and Copolymerization

Vanadium catalysts, among the most important ones, display unique characteristics in olefin polymerization, namely in the preparation of amorphous polymers in ethylene/propylene/non-conjugated diene copolymerization, syndiotactic polypropylene in propylene polymerization and polyethylene with high-molecular weight. In this chapter, the efficient vanadium catalysts with various ligands for olefin oligomerization, polymerization and copolymerization will be introduced in detail.
