The isothermal and non-isothermal crystallization kinetics of LCBPP and linear-iPP was investigated by optical microscopy and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The optical microscopy results in the isothermal crystallization process show that the crystals of LCBPP grow slower than the crystals of the linear-iPP. This originates from the low chain mobility, or in other words, the lower chain diffusion rate of LCBPP due to the existence of long side chains. The DSC results in the… CONTINUE READING
