Both mark the latest addition to the company's Exceed family of metallocene hexene LLDPE film resins.
Praetorius tested different cycloalkyl-bridged catalysts and found that the most successful at incorporating hexene comonomer is the cyclobutyl-bridged, which he says offers "greater control of hexene distribution, MWD, and long-chain branching." Next Praetorius tested the position of the bridge on the catalyst and discovered an unusual effect on molecular weight.
[13] studied two isomers of pentene (1-pentene and trans-2-pentene) and three isomers of hexene (1-hexene, trans-2-hexene, and trans-3-hexene) using a shock tube and developed a kinetic model for them.

The GC-MS of the resulted gases showed that they entirely consist of Hexene, Butene, Octene and a few other hydrocarbon gases (mostly unsaturated).
Group18's HeXeNe is also chemistry-related, referring to a class ofchemical compounds composed of six carbon and twelve hydrogen atoms(though disappointingly, neither carbon nor hydrogen is found in Group18).
A joint venture between National Petrochemicals Company (Petrochem) and Arabian Chevron Phillips Petrochemical Company, this facility has the production capacity for 3 million tons of ethylene, polyethylene, propylene and hexene.
The plant, due for completion in 2012, will be expanded by 50,000 tonnes to 235,000 tonnes, and will have its Spherizone process technology upgraded to use additional co-monomers such as hexene. This will expand the potential applications for its products to include more complex pipe, film and healthcare products.
The HDPE is bimodal and has hexene as a comonomer to improve mechanical and environmental stress cracking performance.

Frank Cannon, senior treasurer of PDI Plastics, a bag manufacturer, says polybags were originally made with low, density polyethylene resins, then linear low density hexene and super hexene.
The bag that met all of these constraints and which was ultimately chosen had a draw tape closure device, a wall thickness of 2.5 mils, and was made of 90 percent Hexene resin, 8 percent low density resin, and 2 percent slip.
