  • ABSTRACT The crystal structure of isotactic polystyrene is described in this paper. The unit cell as determined from the X-ray diffraction spectra of oriented samples is rhombohedral, and its constants referred to hexagonal axes are: a = 21.9 ± 0.1 A , c = 6.65 ± 0.05 A ( chain axis ) Z = 18 ; Space group R 3 c or R 3 ¯ c .
