The realization of hierarchical shish-kebab structures for stereocomplex poly(lactic acid) (PLA) is achieved by the application of a shear flow (100 s(-1) for 1 s) mimicking what can be expected during polymer processing. Compared to the normal shearing scenarios, this transient and strong shear flow enables the creation of dense shish precursors in time- and energy-saving manner. The distribution of crystal form associated with the hierarchical structure is revealed by 2D Fourier transform… CONTINUE READING
