Polypropylene foams are manufactured by the catalytic polymerization
Il is well known lhal ihe conventional thermal or catalytic polymerization
of cyanate ester monomers was performed through polycv-clolrimerizalion lo form polycyanurate containing tria/ine ring structure.
Karl Ziegler (1898-1973), a pioneer in the field of metalorganic chemistry and catalysis, he also achieved breakthroughs in the field of catalytic polymerization
processes of olefins; his research team's discovery of the process to form a new type of polyethylene--high-density polyethylene (HDPE) earned him and Giulio Natta the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1963.
Topics include new catalysts and catalytic polymerization
processes, controlled radical polymerization, high-throughput and micro-scale technologies, new reactor and process design, and intensified processes.
The topics included: applications of surface science in catalysis, catalysis for fuel cells and fuel processors, catalysis in green chemistry, catalytic polymerization
reactions, environmental catalysis, photocatalysis, and unsteady catalytic processes.
Phase behavior, transport properties, the monitoring of reactions, catalytic polymerization
of olefins, and synthesis of advanced materials are among the chapter topics.
