Journal Name: Research & Development in Material Science

Abstract: The increasing comfort, facility, and versatility of today’s human life result from the tremendous volume of research and development in materials science. This short communication combines the following three inter-related materials: support, catalyst, and polyolefin. The major support is silica; magnesium chloride is devoted to polypropylene catalyst. The catalysts list conventional Ziegler-Natta, metallocene, post-metallocene and late transition metal compounds. Polyolefins include polyethylene and polypropylene homo-and copolymers. Millions of us use the huge varieties of polyolefin end-products. But we cannot name all of them.
