Abstract: Abstract Isothermal crystallization growth rates of nucleated and non‐nucleated isotactic polypropylene (iPP) in dotriacontane were determined experimentally by thermal optical microscopy. Adipic acid was used as the nucleating agent. The Lauritzen and Hoffman analysis was used to determine the fold surface energy of the nucleated and non‐nucleated mixtures.
