Copolymerizations of propylene and 4-(~o-alkenyl)-2,6-di-t-butylphenol were performed at 70°C over a high-activity supported TiC14/MgC12 Ziegler-Natta catalyst, using AI(C2Hs) 3 as cocatalyst and diphenyldimethoxysilane as external electron donor. The 4- (og-alkenyl)-2,6-di-t-butylphenol was pretreated with a stoichiometric molar amount of triethylaluminium prior to copolymerization. After the copolymerization the protecting group was removed by converting the phenol aluminium compound to - OH functionality by HCl/ethanol treatment. The copolymerizability of 4- (~o-alkenyl)-2,6-di-t-butylphenol as a function of the number of methylene group spacers between the double bond and the phenol moiety was determined for four different spacers. The results show that the copolymerization yield as well as the phenol content of the produced copolymer increased with an increase of spacer chain length. The produced copolymers exhibited good thermo-oxidative stabilities also after a prolonged extraction with n-heptane
