The terpolymerization equation has been applied to ethylene terpolymerization with 1-butene and C10, C12, and C16 α-olefins. The six binary reactivity ratios in the terpolymerization equation were determined by a computer search for each terpolymerization. The calculated polymer compositions were compared with the compositions determined by 13C NMR spectroscopy, and the results generally agreed within 1 wt %. The terpolymerization behavior could be explained with the determined reactivity ratios and the terpolymerization equation.
