Title: Incorporation of functionalized comonomers in polyolefins

Abstract: This invention relates to copolymers from alpha-olefins, especially ethylene and propylene, and hindered allyl phenols (and other heteroatom-containing olefins) using Ziegler catalysts. New polyolefin compositions containing reactive groups can be prepared from this process. These copolymers have improved coatability and blending characteristics.
