As part of an investigation into the nature and properties of crystalline polymers, the morphology and deformation behavior of polypropylene (PP) single crystals have been examined. The study includes single crystals of the whole polymer as well as single crystals grown from each of three PP fractions (Mn = 740, 1260 and 1880). The structure of the crystal surfaces and the mechanical response of each of the single crystals to a tensile strain have been examined. Results have been obtained which… CONTINUE READING
