In the last three years, research into the nature and strength of metallocene-based materials has exploded. This is the first and only book to provide comprehensive coverage of the developments and advances in the field by such major polyolefin companies as Dow, Exxon, and Montell. The authors begin with overviews of metallocene catalysis and metallocene-based polyolefins, then discuss all areas of the technology, from applications to end-products.
