Polyolefins are engineering thermoplastics that demonstrate diverse thermomechanical properties, attractive chemical resistance, and excellent processability.

Though made from petroleum-derived monomers, greater than 60% of world plastic production remains dominated by polyolefins. Creating sustainable materials that compete with the performance and value proposition of polyolefins is a grand challenge for the field of polymer science.
