ABSTRACT
The article focuses on polypropylene (PP). The industrial applications of PP became possible through stereo regular polymerization. Information is presented on the first generation catalysts, second generation, third generation and fourth generation catalysts of PP. It outlines the uses of additives in PP, including in adjusting colour, in altering stiffness and in controlling transparency.
