Random ethylene/1-hexene copolymers with the 1-hexene content in the range from 2 to 28 mol% were produced with a novel post-metallocene catalyst and analyzed by three techniques, FTIR, 13C NMR, and DSC. The 1-hexene content and the sequence distribution in the copolymers were determined by means of FTIR-M and 13C NMR. The crystallization behavior of the copolymers was studied by DSC under dynamic and isothermal conditions; the Avrami model was used to analyze the crystallization kinetics. It was found that both the 1-hexene content and the crystallization temperature affect the relative crystallinity. The bulk crystallization rate decreases with the 1-hexene content and reduces exponentially with an increase of T c. The melting behavior of isothermally crystallized samples was also investigated and it was found that the melting temperatures of the copolymers under equilibrium conditions were related to the composition
