    • Abstract


      This article focuses on the different components that makeup Ziegler–Natta olefin polymerization systems and showshow investigating the interactions between these componentsthrough computational approaches provide crucial informationabout the chemistry of these systems. Hence, the necessityof theory acting as a counterpoint to experiment is revealed,underlining the importance of computational chemistryin attacking important problems of the day.
