Wenzel and Giesbrecht describe HN5-type precatalysts and catalysts, their syntheses, and their use in gas-phase olefin polymerization reactions. [0005] US 6,803,339 B2 is issued to Richard A. Hall, et al. (“Hall”) and is listed as being assigned to BP Corporation North America Inc. Hall notes a problem that metallocene catalysts have when fed in an olefin monomer stream into a polymerization reactor. “Metallocene catalysts are difficult to employ directly in conventional polymerization processes, and particularly in gas phase processes where the catalyst system will be dispersed in a hydrocarbon or in monomer and metered into the reactor through feed lines. Supported metallocene catalysts are optimally active when preactivated, i.e. combined with the cocatalyst component prior to being introduced into the reactor. Dispersing such catalysts in the olefin monomer stream for direct feed to the reactor system results in polymer formation and causes severe plugging of the feedlines. Moreover, polymerization proceeds before the catalyst system is dispersed fully and uniformly through the polymer bed in the reactor, resulting in highly active hot spots that promote the formation of lumps and plating out. The reactor rapidly becomes fouled, reducing catalyst yields and requiring frequent shutdowns to clean the reactor.” (Column 2, lines 50 to 65; emphasis added.) [0006] Hall elaborates on solutions that others tried before. “Temporarily reducing the activity of metallocene catalysts has been described in the art. For example, adding a dialkyborane or dialkylaluminum to the reactor during a polymerization to temporarily retard the activity of metallocene catalysts has been disclosed as a method for process control. However, catalyst activity is only partially retarded by such treatment. Catalysts directly treated with a dialkyborane or dialkylaluminum retain sufficient activity to initiate polymerization when dispersed in the monomer feed stream. Moreover, the recovery period is very brief, too brief to allow the catalyst system to be adequately dispersed in a stirred reactor gas phase reactor bed before the catalyst recovers and polymerization proceeds.” (Column 3, lines 14 to 26; emphasis added.) [0007] Hall sought a method for temporarily and reversibly passivating metallocene catalysts whereby catalyst activity becomes reduced to a level that will allow feeding the catalyst to the reactor in contact with olefin monomer and adequately dispersing the catalyst in the reactor polymer bed prior to reactivating (column 3, lines 49 to 55). That is, Hall sought a method that would allow feeding a temporarily substantially inactivated metallocene catalyst in an olefin monomer stream into a polymerization reactor. [0008] Hall’s solution relates to a metallocene catalyst that may be temporarily and reversibly passivated by contact with an effective amount of an unsaturated hydrocarbon passivating compound (Abstract). Hall’s solution also relates to a method of temporarily and reversibly passivating metallocene catalysts wherein fully active metallocene catalysts may be temporarily and reversibly passivated by contacting with an effective amount of a passivating compound (column 3, lines 58 to 62). The temporarily and reversibly passivated metallocene catalysts are further characterized as latent olefin polymerization catalysts and will have substantially reduced activity for polymerization of olefins (column 3, lines 63 to 66). [0009] Thus, Hall sought to temporarily substantially inactivate (poison) the metallocene catalyst so that the resulting temporarily substantially inactivated metallocene catalyst could be fed in an olefin monomer stream into the reactor, and yet the temporarily substantially inactivated metallocene catalyst would not polymerize the olefin monomer in the feed stream or plug the feed line. This would give Hall time to disperse the temporarily substantially inactivated metallocene catalyst in a polymer bed in the reactor, and therein the temporarily substantially inactivated metallocene catalyst would be reversibly reactivated. Thus, Hall’s metallocene catalyst is either fully active or substantially inactivated and the substantially inactivated metallocene catalyst is fed into a reactor in the presence of olefin monomer in an olefin monomer feed stream. SUMMARY

[0010] We discovered a problem with separately feeding (i.e., away from monomer and polyolefin polymer particles) hybrid catalysts (i.e., catalysts that have only one cyclopentadienyl-containing ligand) into gas-phase olefin polymerization reactors. Olefin polymerizations are exothermic reactions that may be carried out in solution phase, slurry phase, or gas phase. The nature of a gas-phase polymerization reaction is such that it has least mass for absorbing heat of reaction exotherms. We discovered that even when an active hybrid catalyst is fed separately from olefin monomer feed(s) (and, for that matter, separately from active polyolefin polymer particles) into a gas-phase polymerization reactor containing an olefin monomer and a moving bed of polyolefin polymer, such as when the active hybrid catalyst is fed as a solution or slurry in an inert hydrocarbon solvent (e.g., alkanes or xylenes) into the reactor, once it is inside the reactor and experiencing the polymerization conditions (e.g., high temperature and pressure) the active hybrid catalyst may light-off too fast in the gas-phase polymerization reactor. That is, upon feeding (e.g., injection) of the hybrid catalyst, and before the “faster-light-off” catalyst can be fully dispersed into the moving resin bed, the catalyst starts making polymer particles in the reactor near the catalyst injection site. This locally generates heat faster than it can be absorbed, causing the polymer particles to fuse together, forming agglomerates. These agglomerates foul reactor components and/or spoil the properties of the polyolefin product.

[0011] Also, the faster-light-off hybrid catalyst, when paired with metallocene catalyst, which is slower to light-off, may create a reactivity-mismatched multimodal (e.g., bimodal or trimodal) catalyst system in the reactor. This makes polyolefin polymer particles that undesirably vary in flow index and/or density according to particle size.

[0012] These problems did not surface with metallocene catalysts, which are catalysts that contain two cyclopentadienyl groups (independently unsubstituted or substituted). Metallocene catalysts are relatively slow to light-off in the above situations.

[0013] Our technical solution to the problems arising from the “faster-light-off” hybrid catalyst employs an effective amount of a kinetics modifier compound to alter the molecular structure of the hybrid catalyst in such a way that the resulting structurally-modified hybrid catalyst has a new molecular structure and remains active, but exhibits a characteristic attenuated light-off kinetics profile (“attenuated-light-off hybrid catalyst”, or more simply “attenuated hybrid catalyst”) when fed separately from olefin monomer feed(s) into a gas-phase polymerization reactor. For example, the attenuated kinetics profile may comprise the length of time to peak reaction temperature (Temp peak ) for the attenuated hybrid catalyst is longer and/or the value of Temp peak is lower relative to that of the faster-light-off catalyst from which it was made. The length of the delay is long enough to decrease or prevent agglomerates formation, which in turn delays or prevents fouling of reactor components and/or minimizes spoiling of the properties of the polyolefin product being made thereby. Despite delaying on-set, all other things being equal, many embodiments of the attenuated hybrid catalyst exhibit a catalytic activity/polymerization productivity, expressed as number of grams dried polyolefin product made per gram of catalyst added to reactor-hour (gPE/gcat-hr), that is not significantly less than, and in some embodiments may be more than, that of the faster-light-off non-metallocene catalyst. This result is unpredictable from the art.

[0050] Unsubstituted cyclopentadienyl group. A carbanion of formula [C 5 H 5 ]-. [0051] Hydrocarbyl-substituted cyclopentadienyl group. A carbanion formally derived by replacing one or more hydrogen atoms of an unsubstituted cyclopentadienyl group with one or more hydrocarbyl groups and/or replacing two hydrogen atoms on adjacent ring carbon atoms with one or two hydrocarbylene groups. Examples of such hydrocarbyl groups are (C 1 - C 10 )alkyl, e.g., methyl, ethyl, 1-methylethyl, propyl, and butyl. Examples of such hydrocarbylene groups are -C(H)=C(H)-C(H)=C(H)- (e.g., as in an indenyl group or, when two such groups are used, in a fluorenyl group); -C(CH 3 )=C(H)-C(H)=C(H)-; -C(H)=C(CH 3 )- C(H)=C(H)-; -C(H)=C(H)-C(CH 3 )=C(H)-; -C(H)=C(H)-C(H)=C(CH 3 )-; and -C(H)=C(CH 3 )- C(H)=C(CH 3 )- (e.g., as in a 1,5-dimethylindenyl group (wherein one methyl is on the 5- membered ring and one methyl is on the 6-membered ring) and 4,6-dimethylindenyl group (wherein both methyl groups are on the 6-membered ring)). [0052] Organoheterylene-substituted cyclopentadienyl group. A cyclopentadienyl group that is substituted by an organoheterylene group, which is defined later and is a divalent heteroatom-containing organo group, which has a radical on a carbon atom and a radical on a heteroatom (e.g., N).

[0053] The method of making the attenuated hybrid catalyst. The method comprises combining the faster-light-off catalyst with the effective amount of the kinetics modifier compound of formula (A 1 ), (B 1 ), or (C 1 ) under the effective reaction conditions so as to make the attenuated hybrid catalyst. The faster light-off catalyst may be of formula (II) and the attenuated hybrid catalyst may be of formula (III). The combining step may be performed in the absence of the precatalyst of formula (I). The combining step may be performed in the presence of unreacted activator if the activator is used in excess in an activating step. The faster-light-off catalyst contains the leaving group X bonded to metal atom M. In the combining step, the kinetics modifier compound reacts with the faster-light-off catalyst in such a way so as to displace the leaving group X from the faster-light-off catalyst and replace it with the ligand R derived from the kinetics modifier compound. The ligand is bonded to the metal atom M in the resulting attenuated hybrid catalyst. In some aspects the attenuated hybrid catalyst is of formula (III) and the faster-light-off catalyst is of formula (II) and the precatalyst is of formula (I), all wherein M is Ti and each X is methyl or one X is 1,3-pentadiene. [0054] Embodiments of the method of making may comprise any one of synthetic schemes 1 to 11. [0055] Synthesis Scheme 1: Step (a) hybrid precatalyst + excess activator → intermediate mixture of activated hybrid catalyst + leftover activator. Step (b) intermediate mixture + effective amount of kinetics modifier compound → attenuated hybrid catalyst. [0056] Synthesis Scheme 2: Step (a) hybrid precatalyst + effective amount of kinetics modifier compound → intermediate hybrid precatalyst (unreacted mixture or reaction product of hybrid precatalyst + kinetics modifier compound). Step (b) intermediate hybrid precatalyst + activator (e.g., an alkylaluminoxane such as methylaluminoxane (“MAO”)) → attenuated hybrid catalyst. [0057] Synthesis Scheme 3: Step (a) hybrid precatalyst + activator (e.g., an alkylaluminoxane such as methylaluminoxane (“MAO”)) → activated hybrid catalyst (faster- light-off catalyst). Step (b) activated hybrid catalyst + effective amount of kinetics modifier compound → attenuated hybrid catalyst. [0058] Synthesis Scheme 4: Step (a) activator (e.g., an alkylaluminoxane such as methylaluminoxane (“MAO”)) + effective amount of kinetics modifier compound → intermediate solution. Step (b) Intermediate solution + hybrid precatalyst → attenuated light- off hybrid catalyst. [0059] Synthesis Scheme 5: Step (a) activator → hybrid precatalyst ← effective amount of kinetics modifier compound (simultaneous but separate additions of activator and kinetics modifier to hybrid precatalyst) → attenuated hybrid catalyst. Step (b): none. [0060] Synthesis Scheme 6: Step (a) hybrid precatalyst + support material → supported hybrid precatalyst. (b) supported hybrid precatalyst + an amount of activator → intermediate mixture of activated hybrid catalyst + leftover activator disposed on (or in equilibrium with) the support material. Step (c) intermediate mixture + effective amount of kinetics modifier compound → attenuated hybrid catalyst disposed on (or in equilibrium with) support material. In some aspects step (a) further includes an inert hydrocarbon solvent and deposition on the support material is performed by evaporating the solvent, alternatively by spray-drying. The amount of activator may be a stoichiometric amount relative to the metal M of the hybrid catalyst (e.g., a molar ratio of 1.0 to 1.0); alternatively a less than stoichiometric amount relative thereto (e.g., a molar ratio of from 0.1 to 0.94); alternatively an excess amount (e.g., a molar ratio from 1.1 to 10,000) relative thereto. [0061] Synthesis Scheme 7: Step (a) hybrid precatalyst + effective amount of kinetics modifier compound + support material → intermediate mixture of hybrid precatalyst and kinetics modifier compound disposed on (or in equilibrium with) support material. Step (b) intermediate mixture + activator (e.g., an alkylaluminoxane such as methylaluminoxane (“MAO”)) → attenuated hybrid catalyst disposed on (or in equilibrium with) support material. In some aspects step (a) further includes an inert hydrocarbon solvent and deposition on the support material is performed by evaporating the solvent, alternatively by spray-drying. [0062] Synthesis Scheme 8: Step (a) hybrid precatalyst + support material + activator (e.g., an alkylaluminoxane such as methylaluminoxane (“MAO”)) → activated hybrid catalyst (faster- light-off catalyst) disposed on (or in equilibrium with) support material. Step (b) supported activated hybrid catalyst + effective amount of kinetics modifier compound → attenuated hybrid catalyst disposed on (or in equilibrium with) support material. In some aspects step (a) further includes an inert hydrocarbon solvent and deposition on the support material is performed by evaporating the solvent, alternatively by spray-drying. [0063] Synthesis Scheme 9: Step (a) activator (e.g., an alkylaluminoxane such as methylaluminoxane (“MAO”)) + effective amount of kinetics modifier compound → intermediate solution. Step (b) Intermediate solution + hybrid precatalyst + support material → attenuated light-off hybrid catalyst disposed on (or in equilibrium with) support material. In some aspects step (b) further includes an inert hydrocarbon solvent and deposition on the support material is performed by evaporating the solvent, alternatively by spray-drying. [0064] Synthesis Scheme 10: Step (a) activator → hybrid precatalyst + support material ← effective amount of kinetics modifier compound (simultaneous but separate additions of activator and kinetics modifier compound to mixture of hybrid precatalyst + support material) → attenuated hybrid catalyst disposed on (or in equilibrium with) support material. Step (b): none. In some aspects step (a) further includes an inert hydrocarbon solvent and deposition on the support material is performed by evaporating the solvent, alternatively by spray-drying. [0065] Scheme 11: Step (a): activator (e.g., an alkylaluminoxane such as methylaluminoxane (“MAO”)) + support material (e.g., hydrophobic fumed silica) + inert hydrocarbon solvent → slurry of supported activator disposed on (or in equilibrium with) support material. Step (b): spray-dry slurry of step (a) → spray-dried supported activator disposed on support material in form of a dry powder (e.g., spray-dried MAO on hydrophobic fumed silica as dry powder (“SDMAO” or “sdMAO”). Step (c): mix hybrid precatalyst + spray- dried supported activator of step (b) + inert hydrocarbon solvent → suspension of supported faster-light-off hybrid catalyst disposed on (or in equilibrium with) the support material. Step (d): mix suspension from step (c) with effective amount of a kinetics modifier compound → suspension of a supported attenuated hybrid catalyst disposed on (or in equilibrium with) the support material in inert hydrocarbon solvent. Optional step (e): remove inert hydrocarbon solvent from the suspension of supported attenuated hybrid catalyst → supported attenuated hybrid catalyst disposed on support material in the form of a dry powder. Step (e) may be performed by conventional evaporating of the inert hydrocarbon solvent from the suspension from step (d) or by spray-drying the suspension from step (d). [0066] The multimodal catalyst system may be made fed into the gas-phase polymerization reactor. If desired an additional quantity of the attenuated post-metallocene catalyst or an additional quantity of the second catalyst (e.g., a metallocene catalyst) may be separately fed into the reactor as a solution thereof in an inert hydrocarbon solvent, wherein it contacts the multimodal catalyst system. Such a separate catalyst solution is sometimes called a trim catalyst. Alternatively, the multimodal catalyst system may be contacted with a feed of the trim catalyst in a feed line heading into the reactor. In other embodiments the multimodal catalyst system may be made in situ in a gas-phase polymerization reactor by adding the attenuated post-metallocene catalyst and at least one second catalyst separately into the reactor, wherein they contact each other, thereby making the multimodal catalyst system in situ in the reactor. [0067] The method of any one of the above aspects may further comprise a step of transferring polymer granules, made in the gas-phase or slurry-phase polymerization reactor and containing in the granules fully-active hybrid catalyst, into a (second) gas-phase polymerization reactor. [0068] Kinetics-modifier compound (“KMC”). The kinetics modifier compound of formula (A 1 ) is R 5 -C≡C-R 6 (A 1 ). The kinetics modifier compound of formula (B 1 ) is (R 5 ) 2 C=C=C(R 6 ) 2 (B 1 ). The kinetics modifier compound of formula (C 1 ) is (R 5 )(R 7 )C=C(R 6 )(R 7 ) (C 1 ). The kinetics-modifier compound of formula (A 1 ), (B 1 ), or (C 1 ) beneficially does not function as a poison to the hybrid catalyst or may at most function mildly as such. The compound of formula (A 1 ) is an alkyne, that of formula (B 1 ) is an allene, and that of formula (C 1 ) is an internal alkene. The kinetics modifier compound is free of a vinyl functional group (i.e., lacks a group of formula -C(H)=CH 2 ). [0069] In some embodiments the kinetics modifier compound is as defined in any one of the above-described numbered aspects. [0070] In some embodiments of the kinetics modifier compound of formula (A 1 ), (B 1 ), or (C 1 ), the (C 1 -C 20 )hydrocarbyl is (C 2 -C 6 )alkyl, (C 3 -C 8 )cycloalkyl, or phenyl. In some embodiments the -C(=O)-O-(unsubstituted C 1 -C 20 )hydrocarbyl) is -C(=O)-O-(unsubstituted C 1 -C 5 )alkyl), alternatively -C(=O)-O-ethyl. [0071] In some embodiments at least one X is ((C 1 -C 20 )alkyl) 3-g -(phenyl) g Si- wherein subscript g is 0, 1, 2, or 3; alternatively wherein subscript g is 0 or 1; alternatively 0; alternatively 1. In some aspects at least one X is a (C 6 -C 12 )aryl-((C 0 -C 10 )alkylene)-CH 2 (e.g., benzyl). In some aspects each X is independently a (C 6 -C 12 )aryl-((C 0 -C 10 )alkylene)- CH 2 , alternatively one X is a (C 6 -C 12 )aryl-((C 0 -C 10 )alkylene)-CH 2 (e.g., benzyl) and the other X is F, Cl, or methyl; alternatively each X is benzyl. In some aspects each X is benzyl, alternatively one X is a benzyl and the other X is F, Cl, or methyl. In some aspects at least one X, alternatively each X is a (C 1 -C 6 )alkoxy-substituted (C 6 -C 12 )aryl or a (C 1 -C 6 )alkoxy- substituted benzyl. Without being bound by theory it is believed that the structure of the attenuated hybrid catalyst is similar to the structure of the faster-light-off catalyst except wherein one of the leaving groups X of the faster-light-off catalyst has been replaced by a attenuated-leaving group R in the attenuated hybrid catalyst wherein R is defined later and is derived from the kinetics modifier compound. Attenuated-leaving group R of the attenuated hybrid catalyst is structurally different than, and slower to leave than, the leaving group X of the faster-light-off catalyst. [0072] Ligand R derived from the kinetics modifier compound. The ligand in the attenuated hybrid catalyst that is derived from the kinetics modifier compound may be the group R (“ligand R”). Without being bound by theory, the ligand R is believed to be primarily responsible for the improved kinetics profile of the attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) relative to that of the faster-light-off catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) from which it was made. The ligand R may be of formula (A), (B), or (C): -C(R 5 )=C(X)R 6 (A), -C(R 5 ) 2 -C(X)=C(R 6 ) 2 (B), or -C(R 5 )(R 7 )-C(X)(R 6 )(R 7 ) (C); wherein each of X and R 5 to R 7 is as described earlier. In some embodiments R is the ligand of formula (A) or (B), alternatively R is the ligand of formula (A) or (C), alternatively R is the ligand of formula (B) or (C), alternatively R is the ligand of formula (A), alternatively R is the ligand of formula (B), alternatively R is the ligand of formula (C). The ligands of formulas (A) and (B) both contain a carbon-carbon double bond, which is believed to be extremely slow to polymerize under the gas-phase polymerization conditions. [0073] Not wishing to be bound by theory, reaction of an alkene monomer (e.g., ethylene, propylene, 1-butene, 1-hexene, 1-octene, etc.) with the attenuated-light off catalyst is believed to be by insertion of the alkene monomer into the bond between the M metal center and the attenuated-leaving group R. This insertion may be much slower than the corresponding insertion reaction of an alkene monomer into the bond between the M metal center and the leaving group X of the faster-light-off catalyst. The inventive slower reaction may delay the onset of polymerization. After the first one (or few) alkene monomer insertion reactions, the attenuated-leaving group R is no longer bonded to the metal center, so that all subsequent insertions occur at a similar rate to that of the faster light-off catalyst. Because only the first one (or few) of the thousands or millions of insertion reactions that a catalyst performs are slowed, the overall catalyst productivity may not be significantly reduced. In fact, the attenuated-light off catalyst may have increased productivity because its exotherm is decreased relative to the exotherm of the faster-light-off catalyst. This is because an exothermic reaction that increases the temperature experienced by a catalyst may lead to faster deactivation of the catalyst, which deactivation can decrease productivity for some catalysts, such as some hybrid catalysts. [0074] In the ligand R of formula (A), (B), or (C), each of R 5 and R 6 independently is H or R 7 , and wherein each R 7 independently is a (C 1 -C 20 )hydrocarbyl or a (C 1 - C 17 )heterohydrocarbyl with the proviso that each R 7 lacks a carbon-carbon double bond. The (C 1 -C 20 )hydrocarbyl may be unsubstituted and consist of carbon atoms and hydrogen atoms or the (C 1 -C 20 )hydrocarbyl may be substituted and consist of carbon, hydrogen, and one or more halogen atoms. Each halogen atom is independently selected from F, Cl, Br, and I; alternatively from F, Cl, and Br; alternatively from F and Cl; alternatively from F; alternatively from Cl. The unsubstituted (C 1 -C 20 )hydrocarbyl may be an unsubstituted (C 1 -C 20 )alkyl, an unsubstituted (C 3 -C 20 )cycloalkyl, an unsubstituted (C 6 -C 12 )aryl, an unsubstituted ((C 1 - C 4 )alkyl) 1-3 -phenyl, or an unsubstituted (C 6 -C 12 )aryl-(C 1 -C 6 )alkyl. The substituted (C 1 - C 20 )hydrocarbyl may be a monofluoro or difluoro derivative of the aforementioned unsubstituted (C 1 -C 20 )hydrocarbyl, such as 2-(3,4-difluorophenyl)-ethen-1-yl (of formula (A)). [0075] Each (C 1 -C 19 )heterohydrocarbyl, of embodiments of R 5 to R 7 containing same, may be unsubstituted and consist of carbon atoms, hydrogen atoms, and at least one heteroatom selected from N and O or the (C 1 -C 17 )heterohydrocarbyl may be substituted and consist of carbon atoms, hydrogen atoms, at least one heteroatom selected from N and O, and one or more halogen atoms. The unsubstituted (C 1 -C 17 )heterohydrocarbyl may be (C 1 - C 19 )heteroalkyl, (C 3 -C 19 )heterocycloalkyl, (C 6 -C 12 )heteroaryl, ((C 1 -C 4 )alkoxy) 1-3 -phenyl, or (C 6 -C 12 )heteroaryl-(C 1 -C 6 )alkyl. The substituted (C 1 -C 17 )heterohydrocarbyl may be a monofluoro or difluoro derivative of the aforementioned unsubstituted (C 1 - C 17 )heterohydrocarbyl, such as 2-(3,4-dimethoxyphenyl)-ethen-1-yl (of formula (A)). [0076] The structure of ligand R is different than that of ligand X and, for that matter, that of anion A-. [0077] The attenuated hybrid catalyst. The attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) is made from the faster-light-off catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) according to the method. The attenuated hybrid catalyst is a hybrid catalyst that contains bonded to its metal atom M (e.g., Ti, Zr, or Hf) a ligand (e.g., R) derived from the kinetics modifier compound. The attenuated hybrid catalyst is a new hybrid catalyst. In some embodiments the attenuated hybrid catalyst is the attenuated hybrid catalyst of formula (III). [0078] It is believed that all other things being equal the attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) may work without significantly decreasing the overall catalytic activity relative to that of the faster-light-off catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) from which it was made. That is, despite delaying on-set, the catalyst’s activity/polymerization productivity, expressed as number of grams dried polyolefin product made per gram of catalyst added to reactor-hour (gPE/gcat- hr), may not be significantly less than, and in some embodiments may be more than, that of the faster-light-off hybrid catalyst. For example, the attenuated hybrid catalyst may have greater than 200%, alternatively from 70.0% to 180%, alternatively from 70.0% to 150.0%, alternatively from 70.0% to 120%, alternatively from 80.0% to 120%, alternatively from 90.0% to 120%, alternatively from 100.0% to 120%, alternatively from 110% to 120%, alternatively from 70.0% to 110%, alternatively from 80.0% to 110%, alternatively from 90.0% to 110%, alternatively from 100.0% to 110%, alternatively from 70.0% to ≤ 100%, alternatively from 80.0% to ≤ 100%, alternatively from 90.0% to ≤ 100%, of the productivity of the faster light-off catalyst from which it is made. [0079] It is believed that the attenuated hybrid catalyst of formula (III) may inhibit catalyst light-off and beneficially improve gas-phase reactor operability by decreasing rate of fouling and increasing time between reactor shutdowns relative to the faster-light-off catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) from which it was made. [0080] It is believed that attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) may present an improved polymerization kinetics profile than that of the faster-light-off catalyst of formula (II) from which it was made. This improved polymerization kinetics profile would beneficially increase compatibility of the attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) with slower-light- off olefin polymerization catalysts, such as some metallocene catalysts, and improve performance of the resulting light-off-compatible multimodal (e.g., bimodal or trimodal) catalyst system, relative to that of the faster-light-off catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) from which it was made. [0081] Additionally, it is believed that the attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) may be stored and transported at ambient temperature, instead of at cold storage and cold transportation desired for the faster-light-off catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) from which it was made, until the former can be used in a chemical process. It is believed that the attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) may achieve any one or a combination of any two or more such benefits. [0082] In some embodiments the attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)), and the method of polymerizing an olefin monomer, are free of excess amount of kinetics-modifier compound of formula (A 1 ), (B 1 ), or (C 1 ). In other embodiments the attenuated post- metallocene catalyst and method have an excess amount of the kinetics modifier compound. Such embodiments of the attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) may be made by combining the faster-light-off catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) with a molar ratio of moles of the kinetics modifier compound to moles of metal M of formula (II) of from greater than 0 to 1.0, alternatively from 1.1 to 50, alternatively from 0.5 to 40, alternatively from 0.5 to 30, alternatively from 0.5 to 20, alternatively from 0.5 to 10, alternatively from 0.5 to 2, alternatively from 0.8 to 1.2, alternatively from 0.9 to 1.1 (e.g., 1.0). In such embodiments the kinetics- modifier compound of formula (A 1 ), (B 1 ), or (C 1 ) is used at a stoichiometric amount (molar ratio 1.0) or less than a stoichiometric amount (molar ratio from > 0 to 0.99). When the kinetics- modifier compound is used at a less than stoichiometric amount, the resulting attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) has partially attenuated light-off activity relative to that of the faster-light-off catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) from which it was made. The partially attenuated light-off activity may be helpful when the faster-light-off catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) is only mildly overactive. Generally, the higher the molar ratio of moles of the kinetics modifier compound to moles of metal M (e.g., of formula (II)), the greater the attenuation of the overactivity of the faster-light-off catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)). [0083] In some embodiments the attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)), and the method of polymerizing an olefin monomer, contain an excess amount of kinetics-modifier compound (KMC) of formula (A 1 ), (B 1 ), or (C 1 ). Such embodiments of the attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) may be made by combining the faster-light-off catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) with a molar ratio of moles of the kinetics modifier compound to moles of metal M of formula (II) of greater than 1.0, e.g., KMC/M molar ratio from 1.1 to 50, alternatively from 1.1 to 40, alternatively from 1.1 to 30, alternatively from 1.1 to 20, alternatively from 1.1 to 10; alternatively from 2 to 20; alternatively greater than 20. Remarkably in some embodiments, even when the kinetics-modifier compound is used in an excess amount within the foregoing ranges (KMC/M molar ratio up to about 50), the catalytic activity of the attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) and/or productivity of the gas-phase polymerization reaction using same may not be significantly decreased, and may be increased, relative to those of faster-light-off catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) from which it was made. In other embodiments when the kinetics-modifier compound is used in an excess amount, the catalytic activity of the attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) and/or productivity of the gas-phase polymerization reaction using same may be significantly decreased relative to those of faster- light-off catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) from which it was made. Although the reason for the decrease is not understood, it might be possible that excess kinetics-modifier compound may compete with alkene monomer for displacing the attenuated-leaving group R of formula (III) in equilibrium fashion. Using an excess amount of the kinetics-modifier compound may be helpful when the exact molar amount of metal M of the faster-light-off catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) is not precisely known or may vary from lot to lot thereof. [0084] Attenuated-light-off kinetics profile. The attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) exhibits an attenuated light-off kinetics profile. For example, the attenuated kinetics profile may comprise the length of time to peak reaction temperature Temp peak for the attenuated hybrid catalyst is longer and/or the value of T max is lower relative to that of the faster-light-off catalyst from which it was made. A longer time of at least 0.65 minute from an injection of catalyst (Time zero (Time 0 )) into a reactor containing olefin monomer but no catalyst to time at which peak polymerization reaction temperature is reached (Temp peak ). The greater the value of Temp peak , the greater the delay in catalyst light-off. [0085] For comparing light-off times of different catalysts, use the same olefin monomer (e.g., 1-octene) and the same reactor. For rapid catalyst screening, use a 40-mL glass vial as the reactor and the Light-Off Vial Test Method described later as the test method. [0086] Effective amount of the kinetics modifier compound (KMC). A quantity of kinetics modifier compound (KMC) sufficient to attenuate light-off of catalyst. The effective amount of KMC may be expressed in absolute terms compared to the amount of (pre)catalyst metal M or in relative terms compared to the attenuated light-off performance or as a combination thereof. [0087] In absolute terms in some embodiments the effective amount of the kinetics modifier compound may be expressed as a molar ratio of moles of kinetics modifier compound to moles of metal M (“KMC mol /M mol ”), wherein M is the M of the hybrid precatalyst of structural formula (I), e.g., M is a Group 4 metal. In some embodiments the effective amount of the KMC is expressed as a KMC mol /M mol of ≥ 0.50/1.0, alternatively ≥ 0.9/1.0; alternatively ≥ 1.0/1.0; alternatively ≥ 1.5/1.0; alternatively ≥ 1.9/1.0; alternatively ≥ 3/1.0; alternatively ≥ 5/1.0; alternatively ≥ 6/1.0; alternatively ≥ 9/1.0; alternatively ≥ 10.0/1.0, alternatively ≤ 10.0/1.0, alternatively ≤ 20.0/1.0, alternatively ≤ 30.0/1.0, alternatively ≤ 40.0/1.0, alternatively ≤ 50.0/1.0. Said another way, the immediately foregoing embodiments may be described by expressing the effective amount of the KMC as an inverse molar ratio of moles of metal M to moles of kinetics modifier compound (“M mol /KMC mol ”) as follows: ≤ 1.0/0.5; alternatively ≤ 1.0/0.9; alternatively ≤ 1.0/1.0; alternatively ≤ 1.0/1.5; alternatively ≤ 1.0/1.9; alternatively ≤ 1.0/3.0; alternatively ≤ 1.0/5.0; alternatively ≤ 1.0/6.0; alternatively ≤ 1.0/9.0; alternatively ≤ 1.0/10.0, alternatively ≤ 1.0/20.0, alternatively ≤ 1.0/30.0, alternatively ≤ 1.0/40.0, alternatively ≤ 1.0/50.0, respectively. Generally it is believed that KMC mol /M mol higher than about 50/1.0 may undesirably prevent light-off or functioning of a post-metallocene catalyst containing same. For practical reasons, however (e.g., cost of KMC and/or post-polymerization processing operations/costs (e.g., stripping of excess KMC from a polyolefin resin)), in some embodiments the KMC mol /M mol is limited to at most 40/1; alternatively at most 30/1; alternatively at most 20/1; alternatively at most 10.0; alternatively at most 6.0; alternatively at most 5.0. [0088] In relative terms of attenuated light-off performance, the effective amount of the kinetics modifier compound (KMC) may be expressed by a result measured by the Light-off Vial Test Method described later. For example, as separately measured by the Light-off Vial Test Method described later, with the attenuated hybrid catalyst and the faster-light-off hybrid catalyst from which it was made with the kinetics modifier compound; the effective amount of the kinetics modifier compound (KMC) may have any one of features (i) to (xii) is observed after catalyst injection: (i) a time delay in start of exotherm, i.e., reaction temperature rise (i.e., a greater length of time in minute(s) from addition time zero (Time 0 ) to start of temperature exotherm time (Time exo )); (ii) a slower maximum rate of increase in degrees Celsius per minute (° C./min.) in reaction temperature (e.g., a lower maximum slope in a plot of reaction temperature on y-axis versus time post injection of catalyst on the x-axis); (iii) a lower peak reaction temperature reached (Temp peak ) in ° C.; (iv) a longer time of at least 0.65 minute from addition time at Time 0 to Time Peak Temperature (Time peakT ); (v) both (i) and (ii) but not (iii) or (iv); (vi) both (i) and (iii) but not (ii) or (iv); (vii) both (ii) and (iii) but not (i) or (iv); (viii) both (i) and (iv) but not (ii) and (iii); (ix) both (ii) and (iv) but not (i) or (iii); (x) both (iii) and (iv) but not (i) or (ii); (xi) any three of (i) to (iv); and (xii) each of (i) to (iv). In some embodiments the attenuated-light-off and the effective amount of the KMC is characterized by at least feature (iv), alternatively by feature (iv) only. In some embodiments the longer time of feature (iv) is a time of at least 0.65 minute (39 seconds or longer) from addition time at Time 0 to Time Peak Temperature (Time peakT ) of at least 0.65 minute; alternatively at least 1.0 minute; alternatively at least 1.5 minutes; alternatively from 1.5 minute to 55 minutes; alternatively from 1.6 to 100 minutes; alternatively from 1.6 to 55 minutes; alternatively from 1.6 to 10.0 minutes; alternatively from 10.1 to 20.0 minutes; alternatively from 20.1 to 30.0 minutes; alternatively from 30.1 to 40.0 minutes; alternatively from 40.1 to 50.0 minutes; alternatively from 50.1 to 55 minutes alternatively from 2.0 to 29 minutes; alternatively from 30.1 to 50.4 minutes; all measured according to the Light-off Vial Test Method described later. In some embodiments the attenuated-light-off and the effective amount of the KMC is characterized by feature (viii). In some embodiments the attenuated-light-off is characterized by feature (ix). In some embodiments the attenuated-light-off and the effective amount of the KMC is characterized by feature (x). In some embodiments the attenuated-light-off is characterized by feature (xi). [0089] The delay in time for reaching Temp max by the attenuated hybrid catalyst relative to the time for reaching Temp max by the faster-light-off catalyst may be from 0.70 minute to 500 minutes (e.g., an example is 293 minutes), alternatively from 0.70 minute to 120 minutes, alternatively from 1.0 to 120 minutes, alternatively from 5 to 90 minutes, alternatively from 10 to 70 minutes. [0090] In some embodiments the kinetics profile of the attenuated hybrid catalyst may be characterized as a decrease in peak temperature (Temp peak ) (° C.) relative to the Temp max of the faster-light-off catalyst from which it was made when run under the same polymerization conditions according to the Light-Off Batch Reactor Test Method described later. In the Light- Off Batch Reactor Test Method the Temp max of the attenuated hybrid catalyst may be from 1° to 16° C., alternatively from 2° to 15° C., alternatively 3° to 14° C. lower than the T max of the faster-light-off catalyst from which it was made. In some embodiments the faster-light-off hybrid catalyst is that made from any one of the hybrid precatalysts (1) to (2) described earlier. [0091] In some embodiments the kinetics profile of the attenuated hybrid catalyst may be characterized as an absolute weight/weight ratio of ethylene (C 2 ) uptake after 1 hour (h) to C 2 uptake after 0.1 hour (C 2 (1h)/C 2 (0.1h)). In some embodiments the attenuated hybrid catalyst may have a C 2 (1h)/C 2 (0.1h) ratio from 2.1 to 11, alternatively from 2.2 to 10.4, alternatively from 2.4 to 10.0, alternatively from 3 to 9.9. In some embodiments the faster-light-off hybrid catalyst is that made from any one of the hybrid precatalysts (1) to (2) described earlier. [0092] In some embodiments the kinetics profile of the attenuated hybrid catalyst may be characterized as a relative C 2 (1h)/C 2 (0.1h) ratio of C 2 (1h)/C 2 (0.1h) ratio of the attenuated hybrid catalyst to the C 2 (1h)/C 2 (0.1h) ratio of the faster-light-off catalyst from which it was made when run under the same polymerization conditions according to the Light-Off Batch Reactor Test Method described later. The relative C 2 (1h)/C 2 (0.1h) ratio may be from 1.05 to 6, alternatively from 1.1 to 6, alternatively from 1.2 to 5.4, alternatively from 1.5 to 5.0. [0093] An alternative or additional way of expressing the effective amount of the kinetics modifier compound (KMC) in relative terms of attenuated light-off performance, as measured by the Light-off Vial Test Method described later, may be a sufficient quantity of KMC such that the attenuated hybrid catalyst and the faster-light-off catalyst from which it is made may have light-off profiles as measured by the Light-Off Vial Test Method (described later) wherein the times of their respective peak polymerization temperatures Temp peak are at least 0.7 minute, alternatively greater than 1.0 minute, alternatively greater than 5 minutes, alternatively greater than 10.0 minutes, alternatively greater than 20.0 minutes, alternatively greater than 30.0 minutes, alternatively greater than 40.0 minutes, alternatively greater than 50.0 minutes of each other. The attenuated hybrid catalyst and the faster-light-off catalyst from which it is made may have light-off profiles as measured by the Light-Off Vial Test Method (described later) wherein the times of their respective peak polymerization temperatures Temp peak are within 60 minutes, alternatively within 45 minutes, alternatively within 30 minutes of each other. The effect of the kinetics modifier compound on delaying the time of peak polymerization temperature Temp peak for the attenuated hybrid catalyst relative to the time Temp peak of the of the faster-light-off hybrid catalyst from which it is made may differ depending upon (a) the attenuated hybrid catalyst’s structural class (e.g., formula (Ia) or (Ib), or structural subclass (e.g., formula (Ia)-1 versus (Ia)-1a; or formula (Ia)-1 versus (Ib)-1 and/or (b) the structural class (e.g., acetylenes, allenes, or internal alkenes) or structural subclass (e.g., arylacetylenes versus alkylacetylenes; or monoacetylenes versus diacetylenes or triacetylenes; or acyclic allenes versus cycloalkylallenes versus vinylidene allenes; or aryl-type internal alkenes versus alkyl-type internal alkenes) of the kinetics modifier compound. In some aspects any one of the endpoints for a range of the time difference between the Temp peak of the attenuated hybrid catalyst and the Temp peak of the faster-light-off hybrid catalyst from which it is made may be based on the data given later in the Examples. [0094] In some embodiments the kinetics profile of the attenuated hybrid catalyst may be characterized as a combination of any two, alternatively all but any one, alternatively each of the foregoing embodiments. [0095] Comparative or non-inventive examples either do not contain any kinetics modifier compound or contain less than the effective amount of the kinetics modifier compound. [0096] Catalyst activity. Catalyst activity of the attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) is determined to be substantially the same as catalyst activity of the faster-light-off catalyst if the peak polymerization reaction temperature is reached (Temp peak ) in degrees Celsius (° C.) for the attenuated hybrid catalyst is within ± 5° C., alternatively ± 4° C., alternatively ± 3° C., alternatively ± 2° C., alternatively ± 1° C. of the T p of the faster-light-off catalyst, as measured by the Light-Off Vial Test Method. Or catalyst activity is determined to be the catalyst’s activity/polymerization productivity, expressed as number of grams dried polyolefin product made per gram of catalyst added to reactor-hour (gPE/gcat-hr), and all other things being equal may not be significantly less than, and in some embodiments may be more than, that of the faster-light-off hybrid catalyst. [0097] The faster-light-off catalyst. Embodiments of the faster-light-off catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) may be in need of attenuation of light-off kinetics for slurry-phase and/or gas- phase polymerization of 1-alkene monomer) for the reasons described above. The same or other embodiments of the faster-light-off catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) may be in need of the ligand R for different reasons such as for altering solubility of the catalyst in alkane(s) solvent or for NMR studies of hybrid catalyst structures and improving catalyst structure design. [0098] Anion A-. The faster-light-off hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) and the attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) may each contain an anion A- derived from the activator used to make the faster-light-off hybrid catalyst from the hybrid precatalyst of formula (I) or derived from the leaving group X. The activator functions to activate the hybrid precatalyst of formula (I) by abstracting therefrom a leaving group X to give the faster-light-off hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) and the anion A-. The resulting activated hybrid catalyst, i.e., the faster- light-off hybrid catalyst of formula (II), is conventionally drawn showing the metal atom M with a positive charge. This positive charge indicates a catalytic site to which an olefin monomer may bond during a polymerization reaction. The anion A- formally balances the positive charge such that the faster-light-off hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) and the attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) made therefrom are overall neutral. [0099] The nature of anion A- in the faster-light-off hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) and the attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) is not believed to be important. As mentioned, it may be an anionic derivative of X (i.e., X-) or an anion derivative of the activator. When the activator is an alkylaluminoxane and anion A- is the anion derivative thereof, the anion A- may be an alkylaluminoxane anion; alternatively, when the activator is an organoborane compound and anion A- is the anion derivative thereof, the anion A- may be an organoborane anion; alternatively when the activator is an organoborate compound and anion A- is the anion derivative thereof, the anion A- an organoborate anion. The anion A- is formed during the activating step of aspect 1. It is believed that the anion A- in the faster-light-off hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) is carried through the combining step such that the anion A- in attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) may be the same as the anion A- in faster-light-off catalyst. Nevertheless, the anion A- in the attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) may be the same as or different than the anion A- in the faster-light-off hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)). For example, the anion A- in the faster-light-off hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) may be an anionic derivative of the activator, and the anion A- in the attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) may be X-. [00100] Catalyst structures. Without being bound by theory it is believed that the molecular structure of the faster-light-off hybrid catalyst of formula (II) and the molecular structure of the attenuated hybrid catalyst of formula (III) may be determined by conventional analytical methods such as nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy or gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS). The structure of the ligand R in formula (III) may be determined by quenching an NMR sample of the attenuated post-metallocene catalyst of formula (III) with a protic solvent such as isopropanol, CH 3 OH or H 2 O, a partially deuterated protic solvent such as isopropyl-OD, CH 3 OD or HDO, or a perdeuterated protic solvent, such as perdeuterated isopropanol (CD 3 ) 2 C(D)OD) perdeuterated methanol (CD 3 OD) or D 2 O, to give a by-product of formula H-R or D-R, and analyzing the structure of the by-product by NMR such as proton NMR ( 1 H-NMR) or gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS). [00101] Activating step. In some embodiments the method of making the attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) further comprises the activating step as a preliminary step, which may be completed before start of the combining step. The activating step comprises contacting the precatalyst of formula (I) with the activator under the effective activating conditions that make the faster-light-off hybrid catalyst. The activating step may be performed in the absence of the kinetics modifier compound. [00102] Activator. The activator for activating the hybrid precatalyst of formula (I) may be an alkylaluminoxane, an organoborane compound, an organoborate compound, or a trialkylaluminum compound. The activator may also be a combination of any two or more thereof. For example the activator may comprise an alkylaluminoxane and an organoborate compound such as a methylaluminoxane and an organoborate having CAS name Amines, bis(hydrogenated tallow alkyl)methyl, tetrakis(pentafluorophenyl)borate (Amines, bis(hydrogenated tallow alkyl)methyl, tetrakis(pentafluorophenyl)borate(1-)). The activator for activating a cyclopentadienyl-containing ligand-metal (Ti, Zr, or Hf) complex to give the metallocene catalyst may be the trialkylaluminum compound. [00103] Alkylaluminoxane: also referred to as alkylalumoxane. A product of a partial hydrolysis of a trialkylaluminum compound. Embodiments may be a (C 1 - C 10 )alkylaluminoxane, alternatively a (C 1 -C 6 )alkylaluminoxane, alternatively a (C 1 - C 4 )alkylaluminoxane, alternatively a (C 1 -C 3 )alkylaluminoxane, alternatively a (C 1 - C 2 )alkylaluminoxane, alternatively a methylaluminoxane (MAO), alternatively a modified- methylaluminoxane (MMAO). In some aspects the alkylaluminoxane is a MAO. In some embodiments the alkylaluminoxane is supported on untreated silica, such as fumed silica. The alkylaluminoxane may be obtained from a commercial supplier or prepared by any suitable method. Suitable methods for preparing alkylaluminoxanes are well-known. Examples of such preparation methods are described in U.S. Pat. Nos. 4,665,208; 4,952,540; 5,091,352; 5,206,199; 5,204,419; 4,874,734; 4,924,018; 4,908,463; 4,968,827; 5,308,815; 5,329,032; 5,248,801; 5,235,081; 5, 157, 137; 5,103,031; 5,391,793; 5,391,529; and 5,693,838; and in European publications EP-A-0561476; EP-B1-0279586; and EP-A-0594-218; and in PCT publication WO 94/10180. [00104] The maximum amount of alkylalumoxane may be selected to be a 5,000-fold molar excess over the precatalyst based on the molar ratio of moles of Al metal atoms in the aluminoxane to moles of metal atoms M (e.g., Ti, Zr, or Hf) in the precatalyst. The minimum amount of activator-to-precatalyst may be a 1:1 molar ratio (Al/M). The maximum may be a molar ratio of Al/M of 150, alternatively 124. [00105] The organoborane compound. A tri(fluoro-functional organo)borane compound ((fluoro-organo) 3 B) such as tris(pentafluorophenyl)borane ((C 6 F 5 ) 3 B), tris[3,5- bis(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]borane ((3,5-(CF 3 ) 2 -C 6 H 3 ) 3 B), or a mixture of any two or more thereof. [00106] The organoborate compound. A tetra(fluoro-functional organo)borate compound((fluoro-organo) 4 B) such as N,N-dimethylanilinium tetrakis(pentafluorophenyl)borate, triphenylcarbenium tetrakis(pentafluorophenyl)borate, N,N- dimethylanilinium tetrakis[3,5-bis(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]borate, or triphenylcarbenium tetrakis[3,5-bis(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]borate, or a mixture of any two or more thereof. The organoborate compound may be a methyldi((C 14 -C 18 )alkyl)ammonium salt of tetrakis(pentafluorophenyl)borate, which may be obtained from Boulder Scientific or prepared by reaction of a long chain trialkylamine (Armeen™ M2HT, available from Akzo-Nobel, Inc.) with HCl and Li[B(C 6 F 5 ) 4 ]. Such a preparation is disclosed in US 5,919,983, Ex. 2. The organoborate compound may be used herein without (further) purification. Also, Amines, bis(hydrogenated tallow alkyl)methyl, tetrakis(pentafluorophenyl)borate. [00107] Trialkylaluminum compounds may be utilized as activators for precatalyst (metallocene precatalyst) or as scavengers to remove residual water from polymerization reactor prior to start-up thereof. Examples of suitable alkylaluminum compounds are trimethylaluminum, triethylaluminum, triisobutylaluminum, tri-n-hexylaluminum, and tri-n- octylaluminum. [00108] The activator, also known as a cocatalyst, may affect the molecular weight, degree of branching, comonomer content, or other properties of the polyolefin polymer. The activator may enable coordination polymerization or cationic polymerization. [00109] Without being bound by theory it is believed that the choice of activator used to activate the faster-light-off hybrid catalyst does not influence the structure of the attenuated hybrid catalyst made from the faster-light-off hybrid catalyst. That is, considering just the cation portion of formula (III) (i.e., ignoring the anion A-), the structures of attenuated hybrid catalysts made using different activators are expected to be identical. The structures of unsupported attenuated hybrid catalysts may be easier to determine by NMR than those of supported attenuated hybrid catalysts due to the heterogeneous nature of the latter (typical support materials do not dissolve in NMR solvents). [00110] In some embodiments the choice of A- may have additional effects on the kinetics profile of the attenuated hybrid catalyst. Any such effects of A-, however, will not completely eliminate the beneficial effect(s) of the kinetics modifier compound on the kinetics profile of the attenuated hybrid catalyst. [00111] Effective conditions. The reactions described herein (e.g., the combining step, the activating step, the polymerization) independently are conducted under circumstances that allow the intended reaction to proceed. Examples of effective conditions are reaction temperature, type of atmosphere (e.g., inert atmosphere), purity of reactants, stoichiometry of reactants, agitation/mixing of reactants, and reaction time period. Conditions effective for activating and polymerizing steps may be those described in the art and well-known to the ordinary skilled person. For example, activating effective conditions may comprise techniques for manipulating catalysts such as in-line mixers, catalyst preparation reactors, and polymerization reactors. The activation temperature may be from 20º to 800º C, alternatively from 300º to 650º C. The activation time may be from 10 seconds to 2 hours. Examples of gas-phase polymerizing conditions are described later herein. Effective conditions for the combining step used to make the attenuated hybrid catalyst may comprise a reaction temperature from -50° to 30° C., an inert atmosphere (e.g., nitrogen, helium, or argon gas free of water and O 2 ), reactants that are free of water and O 2 and having a purity from 90% to 100%, amounts of reactants for minimizing waste/maximizing product yield, stirring or mixing reactants, and a reaction time period from 1 minute to 24 hours. [00112] Effective reaction conditions for making the hybrid precatalyst of formula (IV). Such conditions may comprise techniques for manipulating air-sensitive and/or moisture-sensitive reagents and reactants such as Schlenk-line techniques and an inert gas atmosphere (e.g., nitrogen, helium, or argon). Effective reaction conditions may also comprise a sufficient reaction time, a sufficient reaction temperature, and a sufficient reaction pressure. Each reaction temperature independently may be from -78º to 120º C, alternatively from -30º to 30º C. Each reaction pressure independently may be from 95 to 105 kPa, alternatively from 99 to 103 kPa. Progress of any particular reaction step may be monitored by analytical methods such as nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, mass spectrometry to determine a reaction time that is effective for maximizing yield of intended product. Alternatively, each reaction time independently may be from 30 minutes to 48 hours. [00113] The hybrid precatalyst of formula (I). The precatalyst of formula (I) may be synthesized according to methods known in the art, including those methods referenced above. Alternatively, the hybrid precatalyst may be obtained from a precatalyst supplier such as Boulder Scientific. [00114] Polyolefin polymer made by the method of polymerizing. When the 1-alkene monomer is the combination of ethylene and propylene, the polyolefin polymer made therefrom is an ethylene/propylene copolymer. When the 1-alkene monomer is ethylene alone, the polyolefin polymer made therefrom is a polyethylene homopolymer. When the 1-alkene monomer is the combination of ethylene and 1-butene, 1-hexene, or 1-octene, the polyolefin polymer made therefrom is a poly(ethylene-co-1-butene) copolymer, a poly(ethylene-co-1- hexene) copolymer, or a poly(ethylene-co-1-octene) copolymer. In some embodiments the polyolefin polymer made from the 1-alkene monomer is an ethylene-based polymer having from 50 to 100 weight percent (wt%) repeat units derived from ethylene and from 50 to 0 wt% repeat units derived from a 1-alkene monomer selected from propylene, 1-butene, 1-hexene, 1-octene, and the combination of any two or more thereof. [00115] In some embodiments the polymerization method uses the 1-alkene monomer and a comonomer that is a diene monomer (e.g., 1,3-butadiene). When the 1-alkene monomer is a combination of ethylene and propylene and the polymerization also uses a diene monomer, the polyolefin polymer is an ethylene/propylene/diene monomer (EPDM) copolymer. The EPDM copolymer may be an ethylene/propylene/1,3-butadiene copolymer. [00116] The multimodal (e.g., bimodal or trimodal) catalyst system. The bimodal catalyst system comprises the attenuated hybrid catalyst and at least one other olefin polymerization catalyst selected from a different attenuated hybrid catalyst, a hybrid catalyst, and a metallocene catalyst. The multimodal catalyst system makes in a single reactor a multimodal polyethylene composition comprising an HMW polyethylene component and an LMW polyethylene component. Some of the problems relate to unwanted gels in a post-reactor melt- blended multimodal (e.g., bimodal or trimodal) polyethylene composition. Other problems relate to transition complexity and stability of the multimodal (e.g., bimodal or trimodal) catalyst system. Even in the absence of gels, there may be problems due to variability in settling of different size catalyst particles. In some aspects variability in melt index (I 2 ) may be measured as a function of particle size instead of using gel measurements. [00117] The method of making the attenuated hybrid catalyst may be performed in the presence of the metallocene catalyst or a metallocene precatalyst. When performed in the presence of the metallocene precatalyst, the method of activating the precatalyst of formula (I) with an activator further comprises activating the metallocene precatalyst with a same or different activator. Typically, the method of making the attenuated hybrid catalyst is performed in the absence of a metallocene (pre)catalyst. [00118] The metallocene catalyst. The metallocene catalyst may be made from any one of the metallocene precatalyst components described in US7873112B2, column 11, line 17, to column 22, line 21. In some aspects the metallocene catalyst is made from a metallocene precatalyst species named in US7873112B2, column 18, line 51, to column 22, line 5. In some aspects the metallocene precatalyst is selected from bis(ƞ 5 - tetramethylcyclopentadienyl)zirconium dichloride; bis(ƞ 5 - tetramethylcyclopentadienyl)zirconium dimethyl; bis(ƞ 5 - pentamethylcyclopentadienyl)zirconium dichloride; bis(ƞ 5 - pentamethylcyclopentadienyl)zirconium dimethyl; (1,3-dimethyl-4,5,6,7-tetrahydroindenyl)(1- methylcyclopentadienyl)zirconium dimethyl; bis(1-methyl-3-n- butylcyclopentadienyl)zirconium dichloride; bis(1-methyl-3-n-butylcyclopentadienyl)zirconium dimethyl; bis(n-propylcyclopentadienyl)hafnium dichloride; bis(n- propylcyclopentadienyl)hafnium dimethyl; bis(n-butylcyclopentadienyl)zirconium dichloride; (cyclopentadienyl)(1,5-dimethylindenyl)zirconium dimethyl; (methylcyclopentadienyl)(1,5- dimethylindenyl)zirconium dimethyl; (cyclopentadienyl)(1,4-dimethylindenyl)zirconium dimethyl; (methylcyclopentadienyl)(1,4-dimethylindenyl)zirconium dimethyl; and bis(n- butylcyclopentadienyl)zirconium dimethyl. In some aspects the metallocene catalyst is a product of an activation reaction of an activator and any one of the aforementioned metallocene precatalysts. [00119] Unsupported or supported catalyst. The hybrid precatalyst of formula (I), the faster-light-off hybrid catalysts such as the faster-light-off catalyst of formula (II), the attenuated hybrid catalyst such as the attenuated hybrid catalyst of formula (III), and the multimodal catalyst system independently may be unsupported or disposed on a solid particulate support material. When the support material is absent, the hybrid precatalyst of formula (I), the faster-light-off hybrid catalysts such as the faster-light-off catalyst of formula (II), the attenuated hybrid catalyst such as the attenuated hybrid catalyst of formula (III), and/or the multimodal catalyst system may be injected into a slurry-phase or gas-phase polymerization reactor as a solution in a hydrocarbon solvent. When the hybrid precatalyst of formula (I), the faster-light-off hybrid catalysts such as the faster-light-off catalyst of formula (II), the attenuated hybrid catalyst such as the attenuated hybrid catalyst of formula (III), and/or the multimodal catalyst system is/are disposed on the support material, they may be injected into the slurry-phase or gas-phase polymerization reactor as a slurry suspended in the hydrocarbon solvent or as a dry, powder (i.e., dry particulate solid). [00120] The faster-light-off hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) and/or the attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., formula (III)) may be premade in the absence of the support material and later disposed onto the support material. Alternatively, the hybrid precatalyst of formula (I) or the faster-light-off hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) may be disposed onto the support material, and then the faster-light-off hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) and/or the attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) may be made in situ on the support material. [00121] The supported hybrid precatalyst of formula (I), the supported faster-light-off hybrid catalyst (e.g., supported catalyst of formula (II)) and/or the supported attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., supported catalyst of formula (III)) may be made by a concentrating method by evaporating a hydrocarbon solvent from a suspension or solution of the support material in a solution of the precatalyst of formula (I), the faster-light-off catalyst (e.g., of formula (II)) and/or the attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., of formula (III)) in the hydrocarbon solvent. Alternatively, the supported precatalyst of formula (I), the supported faster-light-off catalyst (e.g., supported catalyst of formula (II)) and/or the supported attenuated hybrid catalyst (e.g., supported catalyst of formula (III)) may be made by a spray-drying method by spray-drying the suspension or solution. In some embodiments, the spray-drying method is used. [00122] The support material. The support material is a particulate solid that may be nonporous, semi-porous, or porous. A carrier material is a porous support material. Examples of support materials are talc, inorganic oxides, inorganic chloride, zeolites, clays, resins, and mixtures of any two or more thereof. Examples of suitable resins are polystyrene, functionalized or crosslinked organic supports, such as polystyrene divinyl benzene polyolefins. The support material independently may be an untreated silica, alternatively a calcined untreated silica, alternatively a hydrophobing agent-treated silica, alternatively a calcined and hydrophobing agent-treated silica. The hydrophobing agent may be dichlorodimethylsilane. [00123] Inorganic oxide support materials include Group 2, 3, 4, 5, 13 or 14 metal oxides. The preferred supports include silica, which may or may not be dehydrated, fumed silica, alumina (see, for example, PCT Publication WO 99/60033), silica-alumina and mixtures thereof. Other useful supports include magnesia, titania, zirconia, magnesium chloride (U.S. Pat. No. 5,965,477), montmorillonite (EP 0511665), phyllosilicate, zeolites, talc, clays (U.S. Pat. No. 6,034,187), and the like. Also, combinations of these support materials may be used, for example, silica-chromium, silica-alumina, silica-titania and the like. Additional support materials may include those porous acrylic polymers described in EP 0767184, which is incorporated herein by reference. Other support materials include nanocomposites as disclosed in PCT Publication WO 99/47598; aerogels as disclosed in PCT Publication WO 99/48605; spherulites as disclosed in U.S. Pat. No. 5,972,510; and polymeric beads as disclosed in PCT Publication WO 99/50311. [00124] The support material may have a surface area in the range of from about 10 m 2 /g to about 700 m 2 /g, a pore volume in the range of from about 0.1 cm 3 /g to about 4.0 cm 3 /g, and average particle size in the range of from about 5 microns to about 500 microns. The support material may be a silica (e.g., fumed silica), alumina, a clay, or talc. The fumed silica may be hydrophilic (untreated), alternatively hydrophobic (treated). In some aspects the support is a hydrophobic fumed silica, which may be prepared by treating an untreated fumed silica with a hydrophobing agent such as dimethyldichlorosilane, a polydimethylsiloxane fluid, or hexamethyldisilazane. In some aspects the treating agent is dimethyldichlorosilane. In one embodiment, the support is Cabosil™ TS-610. [00125] One or more precatalysts and/or one or more activators may be deposited on, contacted with, vaporized with, bonded to, or incorporated within, adsorbed or absorbed in, or on, one or more support or carrier materials.

The polymerization uses a GPP reactor, such as a stirred-bed gas phase polymerization reactor (SB-GPP reactor) or a fluidized-bed gas-phase polymerization reactor (FB-GPP reactor). Such reactors and methods are generally well- known. For example, the FB-GPP reactor/method may be as described in any one of US 3,709,853; US 4,003,712; US 4,011,382; US 4,302,566; US 4,543,399; US 4,882,400; US 5,352,749; US 5,541,270; US 2018/0079836 A1; EP-A-0802202; and Belgian Patent No. 839,380. These SB-GPP and FB-GPP polymerization reactors and processes either mechanically agitate or fluidize by continuous flow of gaseous monomer and diluent the polymerization medium inside the reactor, respectively. Other useful reactors/processes contemplated include series or multistage polymerization processes such as described in US 5,627,242; US 5,665,818; US 5,677,375; EP-A-0794200; EP-B1-0649992; EP-A-0802202; and EP-B-634421 [00130] Gas phase polymerization operating conditions are any variable or combination of variables that may affect a polymerization reaction in the GPP reactor or a composition or property of a polyolefin polymer composition product made thereby. The variables may include reactor design and size; precatalyst composition and amount; reactant composition and amount; molar ratio of two different reactants; presence or absence of feed gases such as H 2 , molar ratio of feed gases versus reactants, absence or concentration of interfering materials (e.g., H 2 O and/or O 2 ), absence or presence of an induced condensing agent (ICA), average polymer residence time in the reactor, partial pressures of constituents, feed rates of monomers, reactor bed temperature (e.g., fluidized bed temperature), nature or sequence of process steps, time periods for transitioning between steps. Variables other than that/those being described or changed by the method or use may be kept constant. [00131] In a GPP method, control individual flow rates of ethylene (“C 2 ”), hydrogen (“H 2 ”) and 1-hexene (“C 6 ” or “C x ” wherein x is 6) to maintain a fixed comonomer to ethylene monomer gas molar ratio or feed mass ratio (C x /C 2 , e.g., C 6 /C 2 ) equal to a described value (e.g., 0.00560 or 0.00703), a constant hydrogen to ethylene gas molar ratio or feed mass ratio (“H 2 /C 2 ”) equal to a described value (e.g., 0.00229 or 0.00280), and a constant ethylene (“C 2 ”) partial pressure equal to a described value (e.g., 1,000 kPa). Measure concentrations of gases by an in-line gas chromatograph to understand and maintain composition in the recycle gas stream. Maintain a reacting bed of growing polymer particles in a fluidized state by continuously flowing a make-up feed and recycle gas through the reaction zone. Use a superficial gas velocity of 0.49 to 0.79 meter per second (m/sec) (1.6 to 2.6 feet per second (ft/sec)). Operate the FB-GPP reactor at a total pressure of about 2068 to about 2758 kilopascals (kPa) (about 300 to about 400 pounds per square inch-gauge (psig)) and at a described first reactor bed temperature RBT. Maintain the fluidized bed at a constant height by withdrawing a portion of the bed at a rate equal to the rate of production of particulate form of the polyolefin polymer composition, which production rate may be from 5,000 to 150,000 kilograms per hour (kg/hour). Remove the product polyolefin polymer composition semi- continuously via a series of valves into a fixed volume chamber, wherein this removed multimodal (e.g., bimodal or trimodal) ethylene-co-1-hexene copolymer composition is purged to remove entrained hydrocarbons and treated with a stream of humidified nitrogen (N 2 ) gas to deactivate any trace quantities of residual catalyst. [00132] The catalyst system may be fed into the polymerization reactor(s) in “dry mode” or “wet mode”, alternatively dry mode, alternatively wet mode. The dry mode is a dry powder or granules. The wet mode is a suspension in an inert liquid such as mineral oil. [00133] Induced condensing agent (ICA). An inert liquid useful for cooling materials in GPP reactor(s). Its use is optional. The ICA may be a (C 3 -C 20 )alkane, alternatively a (C 5 - C 20 )alkane, e.g., 2-methylbutane (i.e., isopentane). See US 4,453,399; US 4,588,790; US 4,994,534; US 5,352,749; US 5,462,999; and US 6,489,408. ICA concentration in reactor may be from 0.1 to 25 mol%, alternatively from 1 to 16 mol%, alternatively from 1 to 10 mol%. [00134] The GPP conditions may further include one or more additives such as a chain transfer agent or a promoter. The chain transfer agents are well known and may be alkyl metal such as diethyl zinc. Promoters are known such as in US 4,988,783 and may include chloroform, CFCl 3 , trichloroethane, and difluorotetrachloroethane. Prior to reactor start up, a scavenging agent may be used to react with moisture and during reactor transitions a scavenging agent may be used to react with excess activator. Scavenging agents may be a trialkylaluminum. GPP may be operated free of (not deliberately added) scavenging agents. The GPP reactor/method may further include an amount (e.g., 0.5 to 200 ppm based on all feeds into reactor) of one or more static control agents and/or one or more a continuity additives such as aluminum stearate or polyethyleneimine. The static control agent(s) may be added to the FB-GPP reactor to inhibit formation or buildup of static charge therein. [00135] The GPP reactor may be a commercial scale FB-GPP reactor such as a UNIPOL™ reactor or UNIPOL™ II reactor, which are available from Univation Technologies, LLC, a subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company, Midland, Michigan, USA.

To the vial add 5.5 mL or 11 mL of 1-octene, and seal the vial with a septum cap. Record addition time as T 0 (0.00 minute). Manually shake (not stir) the vials to prevent clumping. Then place the shaken vials in different wells of a foam block sitting on a hotplate/stirrer. Immediately insert thermocouples through the septa caps into the vials below the liquid level therein, and record temperatures (° C.) of the contents of the vials at 5 seconds intervals from T 0 to 300 minutes past T 0 . Download the temperature and time data to a spreadsheet, and plot thermo- kinetic profiles for analysis. The results of these runs may be depicted graphically as a plot of reaction temperature of the batch reactor contents on the y-axis versus time starting from addition of Time 0 on the x-axis. [00192] Inventive Examples (“IE”) and Comparative Examples (“CE”) made by the Light-Off Vial Test Method. Combined effective amounts of certain kinetics modifier compounds (“KMC”) with certain faster-light-off hybrid catalysts to give inventive examples of attenuated hybrid catalysts. Comparative examples meet one of three criteria (1) to (3): (1) contain a hybrid catalyst but do not contain a kinetics modifier compound, (2) contain a hybrid catalyst but contain less than an effective amount of a kinetics modifier compound (e.g., CE1a), or (3) contain a metallocene catalyst and a kinetics modifier compound. Tested the light-off effects with polyoctene of the faster-light-off hybrids and the inventive examples according to the Light-Off Vial Test Method tests to compare their relative activities. In separate vials, premix for 10 minutes (a) a mineral oil that is free of 1-octene, (b) an example of a hybrid precatalyst, and (c) a spray-dried methylaluminoxane (SDMAO) without a kinetics modifier compound to give a slurry of the faster-light-off hybrid catalyst that is free of 1-octene and kinetics modifier compound. In other vials premix for 10 minutes (a) mineral oil that is free of 1-octene, (b) the hybrid precatalyst, (c) the SDMAO, and (d) a kinetics modifier compound to give a slurry of the attenuated hybrid catalyst that is free of 1-octene. After 10 minutes of premixing (time in all Conditions except (B)*), add to each vial a same quantity of 1-octene. After the addition of 1-octene, observe a 5° to 120° C. increase, alternatively 10° to 110° C. increase, alternatively an increase in any temperature decade thereof (e.g., 10° to 20° C., 20° to 30° C. 30° to 40° C., 40° to 50° C., 50° to 60° C., 60° to 70° C., 70° to 80° C., 80° to 90° C., 90° to 100° C.,100° to 110° C., 110° to 120° C.) in temperature of the mixtures as evidence of activation of the respective catalyst. One of four sets of conditions is used: Conditions (A) (used in Tables 1 to 4): 5.5 mL Isopar-E; 8 µmol M; amount of SDMAO is quantity to give molar ratio Al/M = 120; 0 µmol (CE) or 2 µmol (IE) kinetics modifier compound; 11 mL 1-octene; Conditions (B) (used in Table 5): 5.5 mL Isopar-E; 10 µmol M; amount of SDMAO is quantity to give molar ratio Al/M = 120; 0 µmol (CE) or 2 µmol (IE) kinetics modifier compound; 5.5 mL 1-octene, wherein premixing is for 5 minutes instead of the 10 minutes*; Conditions (C) (used in Table 6): 5.5 mL Isopar-E; 20 µmol M; amount of SDMAO to give molar ratio Al/M = 120; amount of kinetics modifier compound is 0 µmol (CE) or quantity to give indicated molar ratio M/KMC (IE); 5.5 mL 1-octene; Conditions (D) (used in Table 7): 5.5 mL Isopar-E; 2 µmol M; amount of SDMAO to give molar ratio Al/M = 120; amount of kinetics modifier compound is 0 µmol (CE) or quantity to give indicated molar ratio M/KMC (IE); 5.5 mL 1-octene.

Light-Off Batch Reactor Test Method. [00197] General. Observe relative kinetic profiles of faster-light-off catalysts and attenuated hybrid catalysts in separate polymerization runs each done in a 2-liter (L) semi-batch autoclave polymerization reactor equipped with a mechanical agitator. In the batch reactor, copolymerize ethylene and 1-hexene in the presence of hydrogen (H 2 ) in the gas phase. Analyze concentrations of ethylene (“C 2 ”), 1-hexene (“C 6 ”), and H 2 in the gas phase by mass spectrometry and gas chromatography. Add C 6 and H 2 components continuously throughout a 3-hour polymerization run to maintain their concentrations at steady state, but do not add more C 2 . Measure ethylene uptake versus time to give relative representations of catalyst kinetic profiles. [00198] Batch reactor drying and loading. Prior to each run, dry the batch reactor for 1 hour. Then charge the dried batch reactor with 200 g NaCl. Further dry the batch reactor by heating it and its contents for 30 minutes under N 2 atmosphere at 100° C. Then add 3 g of silica- supported methylaluminoxane (SMAO) to scavenge residuals, seal the batch reactor, and stir contents. Then charge the resulting dried batch reactor with 3.04 liters (L) of H 2 and 1-hexene so as to give a 1-hexene-to-ethylene (C 6 /C 2 ) molar ratio of 0.004. Pressurize the batch reactor with ethylene to 1.52 megapascals (MPa). Allow the resulting system to reach steady state. [00199] Then charge the batch reactor with a catalyst (a faster-light-off catalyst or an attenuated hybrid catalyst) to initiate polymerization. Record the time of addition of catalyst as Time zero (Time 0 ). Bring reactor temperature to 93° C. and maintain it at that temperature for from 1 to 5 hours. Cool the reactor down, vent, open, and wash the resulting polyolefin product with water, methanol, and dry it to give dried polyolefin product. [00200] For each batch reactor run, calculate catalyst activity/polymerization productivity as number of grams dried polyolefin product made per gram of catalyst added to reactor-hour (gPE/gcat-hr). The higher the number of gPE/gcat-hr, the higher the catalyst activity/polymerization productivity. Record the amount of ethylene uptake after 0.1 hour (C 2 uptake 0.1h) (6 minutes) and after 1.0 hour (C 2 uptake 1h) (60 minutes), and report as a ratio of (C2 uptake 1h)/(C2 uptake 0.1h). All other things being equal, the greater the ratio of (C 2 uptake 1hour)/(C 2 uptake 0.1hour), the more attenuated is catalyst light-off. [00201] Determine melt temperature of the dried polyolefin product using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) according to ASTM D3418-08 using a scan rate of 10° C. per minute on a 10 mg sample and using the second heating cycle. Some embodiments of the inventive polyolefin products made by the attenuated hybrid catalyst may have higher melting points than the melting points of comparative polyolefin products made by its corresponding faster- light-off catalyst. [00202] From light-off batch reactor runs with faster-light-off catalysts, a majority of ethylene uptake may occur within the first few minutes from the start of the polymerization run (e.g., within 10 minutes of Time 0 ). In contrast with the attenuated hybrid catalysts, ethylene uptake is spread out more evenly throughout the 3-hour long polymerization runs. The results of these comparative and inventive runs may be depicted graphically as a plot of reaction temperature of the batch reactor contents on the y-axis, or ethylene monomer (“C 2 ”) uptake on the y-axis, versus time starting from addition of Time 0 on the x-axis.
