Ethylene homopolymerization by two types of Ziegler‐Natta catalyst including ZN‐THF and ZN‐EtOH catalysts was compared. The influences of hydrogen pressure and reaction time on catalytic activity using different types of catalyst were investigated. The EDX analysis and surface area measurement confirmed that ZN‐EtOH catalyst had better active center distribution than that of ZN‐THF. Thus, the ZN‐EtOH catalyst could retard the effect of hydrogen and show higher activity with increased hydrogen pressures. However, catalytic activity was lower with high hydrogen pressure. Moreover, polymerization time also has an influence on activity. Both catalysts showed the similar result where an increase in polymerization time can improve yield of polymer, but it decreased activity. In addition, it is seen that the increase in hydrogen pressure leads to decrease the melting temperature for polyethylenes, but it increases the crystallinity.
