Physical Properties of Isotactic Poly(propylene)/Silver Nanocomposites: Dynamic Crystallization Behavior and Resultant Morphology
The presence of silver nanoparticles (0.01-5 wt.-%) increased the crystallization temperature of isotactic poly(propylene) (iPP) (e.g., a 5 wt.-% content increases the temperature by ca. 7 °C) andExpand
