In this study, we synthesized a terpolymer consisting of ethylene, 1-hexene, and styrenic monomer using a metallocene catalyst and cocatalyst ststem. The styrenic monomers empolyed as the third monomer were styrene, p-methylstyrene, and 4-tert-butylstyrene. The structure and composition of the terpolymers were characterized using $^{13}C$ NMR and $^1H$ NMR. Catalytic activity, polymer yield, molecular weight and molecular weight distribution of the terpolymers were analyzed. We also determined the glass transition temperature(Tg), crystallinity and thermal properties of the terpolymers by DMA, WAXS and TGA.
