Organometallics, such as metal alkyls, metallocene catalysts and methylaluminoxanes are used in a wide range of applications. The main area of application of metal alkyls is the polymerization of olefins and dienes by Ziegler-Natta (ZN) catalyst systems.

Each year, millions of tons of polyethylene, polypropylene and several types of synthetic rubbers are manufactured with our products. Metal alkyls are also used as co-catalyst in a variety of related technologies, which are extensions of Ziegler chemistry. These include oligomerization of ethylene, dimerization and cyclodimerization of olefins and dienes and ring opening polymerization.
