General description

Propylene is a nonpolar olefin. Selective oxidation of propylene in a gas containing oxygen and hydrogen over Au/TiO2 catalysts has been reported. Polymerization of propylene using Ziegler-Natta catalyst has been studied. Metal-catalyzed copolymerizations of nonpolar olefins (ethylene and propylene) with alkyl acrylates has been described. Copolymerization of propylene with the linear α-olefins 1-octene, 1-decene, 1-tetradecene, and 1-octadecene has been studied.


Propylene may be used in the synthesis of propylene oxide via epoxidation with hydrogen peroxide, in the presence of titanium silicalite catalyst.

The use of bis(1,3-di-tert-butylimidazolin-2-iminato) titanium dichloride (1) and dimethyl (2) complexes in the polymerization of propylene is presented. The complexes were activated using different amounts of methylalumoxane (MAO), giving in each case a very active catalytic mixture and producing polymers...
