Short-time isoprene polymerization under the action of a titanium–magnesium catalyst

Short-time isoprene polymerization under the action of a titanium–magnesium catalyst The short-time polymerization of isoprene under the action of a TiCl4/MgCl2−i-Bu3Al heterogeneous catalyst has been investigated. Pulse mixing of the catalyst and monomer in a cylindrical tubular reactor with a certain length followed by ethanol injection has made it possible to carry out polymerization for 0.1−0.7 s. In the first 0.3 s, when there is a considerable rise in the activity of the catalyst, living polymerization of isoprene takes place. In this period, polyisoprene has up to 95% trans-1,4 units. Extending the polymerization time to 0.7 s diminishes the average molar mass of polyisoprene, broadens its molar mass distribution, and decreases the concentration of trans-1,4 units to 83%. The data of this study have been analyzed on the basis of the kinetic continuity of the polymer chain initiation and growth. Kinetics and Catalysis Springer Journals
