The Catalytic Copolymerization of Ethene with Carbon Monoxide Efficiently Carried out in Water-Dichloromethane-Sodium Dodecylsulfate Emulsion
Abstract: The CO-ethene copolymerization has been efficiently carried out in the water/CH2Cl2 emulsion by using water insolvable Pd(II) complexes. By using the surfactant SDS very high molecular weight copolymers have been obtained with high productivity (ca. 13,000 g/(gPd.h)).
