The reactions between the magnesium chloride and transition metal chlorides in tetrahydrofuran were investigated to explain the unique role of MgCl2 as a supporter in propylene polymerization process. Reactions between [MgCl2(THF)2] and [TiCl4(THF)2], in dependence of concentration, produce the compounds: |Mg(THF)6] [TiCl5THF], [C4Ti(µ-Cl)2Mg(THF)4] and [Mg2(µ-Cl)3(THF)4] [TiCl5THF]. Titanium-magnesium compounds under influence of AlCl3 suffer decomposition, yielding [TiCl4(THF)2] and the new compound AlMgCl5(THF)6. The same compound was formed also in chemical reaction of [MgCl2 (THF)2] with AlCl3. This reaction may probably explain the role of magnesium chloride as a supporter in the super high activity catalyst.
