In the absence of an external donor, this leads to poor stereoselectivity due to increased mobility of the titanium species on the catalyst surface . In contrast to ester internal donors, the diethers, having greater aﬃnity towards MgCl2 than towards AlR3, are not displaced from the catalyst surface on contact with the cocatalyst . Consequently, highly isotactic poly(propene) can be obtained even in the absence of an external donor. Studies by Busico et al.  have indicated that active species in MgCl2-supported catalysts can isomerize very rapidly (during the growth time of a single polymer chain) between three diﬀerent propagating species.
The deﬁnition of reactivity ratios is d½M1 ½M1 r1 ½M1 þ ½M2 ¼ d½M2 ½M2 ½M1 þ r2 ½M2 ð37Þ The product r1 Â r2 usually ranges from zero to 1. When r1 Â r2 ¼ 1, the copolymerization is random. As r1 Â r2 approaches zero, there is an increasing tendency toward alternation. 1. Radical Copolymerization At elevated temperatures, ethene can be copolymerized with a number of unsaturated compounds by radical polymerization [174–180] (Table 7). The commercially most important comonomers are vinyl acetate , acrylic acid, and methacrylic acid as well as their esters.
An interesting eﬀect is observed for the polymerization with ethylene(bisindenyl)zirconium dichloride and some other metallocenes. Although the activity of the homopolymerization of ethene is very high, it increases when copolymerizing with propene . The copolymerization of ethene with other oleﬁns is eﬀected by the variation of the Al/Zr ratio, temperature and catalyst concentration. These variations change the molecular weight and the ethene content. Higher temperatures increase the ethene content and lower the molecular weight.
