The crystallization kinetics of syndiotactic polystyrene (SPS) were studied using nonisothermal DSC analysis. Crystallization rates and half‐times were determined from the glass transition temperature (∼ 100°C) up to the melt temperature (∼ 270°C) for various molecular weight SPS polymers. The results suggest that the crystallization rate of SPS is molecular weight dependent. These results are also compared with previously determined crystallization kinetics of high density polyethylene. The maximum …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
