Our research is targeting important industrial issues related to the production of commodity chemicals. To this end, we are synthesizing and characterizing new catalytic systems based on several transition metals with the goal of to improving catalytic behavior through the understanding of the reaction mechanisms. As part of mechanistic studies we are also endeavouring the isolation of catalytically active intermediates. The processes targeted are olefin polymerization and selective oligomerization. These studies are conducted in close collaboration with the University of Eindhoven (The Netherlands) and Industrial sector (Dutch Polymer Institute, Sabic).
