Abstract: Abstract An extrusion‐grade medium‐density polyethylene was fractionated by size exclusion chromatography and selective solvent extraction. The fractions were studied by infrared spectroscopy, differential scanning calorimetry, and transmission electron microscopy. Infrared spectroscopy showed that chain branching was concentrated to the low molar mass material. Transmission electron microscopy showed the presence of roof‐shaped crystals in the low molar mass samples and curved S‐or C‐shaped lamellae in the h…
