Abstract

Polyolefms represented by polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) are indispensable materials with certain social impact in countless beneficial ways. Metallocene based catalyst technology is expected to revolutionize the immense polyolefm industry, particularly in PE and PP markets. Metallocenes offer some significant process advantages and produce polymers with very favorable properties. Traditional classical molecular dynamics (MD) method cannot challenge the ethylene/a-olefm polymerization process of metallocene catalyst system. In the present investigation, we applied our original MD simulator to the polymerization process of ethylene/1-butene on the metallocene catalyst.
