Two new synthetic routes for the preparation of model Ziegler−Natta catalysts under UHV conditions are described.

The exposure of metallic magnesium to TiCl4 produced titanium chloride films with Ti in the 4+, 3+, 2+, and 0 oxidation states. Stable titanium chloride films could also be obtained by TiCl4 and Mg codeposition on MgCl2 and Au.

A TiCl4/TiCl2 film was Cited by: Graduation date: Single crystal surfaces can be used as substitutes or\ud models for the actual reactive surfaces of heterogeneous\ud catalysts.

The advantage in using such models is that the\ud reaction of interest can be isolated on the particular\ud face of the crystal that is thought to be catalytically\ud active. An active model for a Ziegler–Natta ethylene polymerization catalyst has been prepared by spin-coating of a MgCl 2 solution in ethanol on a flat silicon () substrate covered by amorphous silica.

The flat model approach facilitates characterization of the catalyst using surface spectroscopy and microscopy by: The spin-coating technique is described elsewhere [1]. Results and Discussion. A fundamental question in Ziegler-Natta catalysis is which crystallite face is most effective for coordination of the active site precursor, TiCl 4, and where the active species are located.
