The project, Methylaluminoxane (MAO) activators as industriell robots in the molecular polyolefin (PO) factory, in short ”MAO-ROBOTS”, is a collaborative project funded by the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme under theme NMP-2009-1.2-2.

The objective of the interdisciplinary EU-project MAO-ROBOTS is to investigate the nanostructure of catalyst-activator-systems used for industrial polyolefin production, in order to establish a basis for the improvement of the production efficiency of this industrial important class of plastics, achievement of enhanced  material properties to the point of creation of new classes of special substances.
