THE AVN BLOG: Olefin Polymerization


Polymerization of an olefin with a specific catalyst had been found by a customer to produce a product of interest in a small-scale batch reaction. AVN was engaged to assist in scaling up the process to generate 25 kg of product. Challenges included finding process conditions that would generate product with the desired properties while carrying out the process in continuous mode. A series of tests identified the important variables in producing good material. The product was provided to the customer, and information needed to produce it at larger scale was also generated.
