Ethylene is oligomerized to various alpha-olefins with an even number of carbon atoms using Ziegler catalysts.The long chain olefins are displaced from the alkyl aluminium catalyst by heating to 300°C and 50 bar pressure.alpha-Olefins prepared by Ziegler oligomerization are of higher quality than those make by thermal cracking, but they are more expensive.
