Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Ziegler-Natta polymerization of styrene using a titanium tetrachloride/triethyl aluminium catalyst system has been performed in the presence of high intensity ultrasound. The polymers are produced in better yield and with more control over the molecular weight distribution than in the conventional, unsonicated process.
