Abstract: Abstract The overall isothermal crystallization kinetics for nucleated and non‐nucleated isotactic polypropylene (iPP)‐dotriacontane systems was investigated. Adipic acid was used as the nucleating agent. Half‐time was determined via differential scanning calorimetry as a function of the experimentally controlled variables dilution, crystallization temperature, and the addition of nucleating agent. The influence of these variables on crystallization mechanism and spherulitic structure, as implied by the Avram…
