FT-IR/PAS Investigation of Chromocene Supported on Silica

Volume 38, Number 6 (Dec. 1984) Page 834-837

McKenna, William P.; Bandyopadhyay, Saibal; Eyring, Edward M.

Chromocene anchored on silica has been investigated by Fourier transform infrared photoacoustic spectroscopy (FT-IR/PAS). The mid infrared spectrum of this olefin polymerization catalyst has been obtained before and after treatment with ethylene. A model complex for a key intermediate in the olefin polymerization has been observed. The design of a vacuum jacketed PA cell for use in a vacuum bench FT-IR spectrometer is also presented.
