Abstract: Abstract Non‐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 non‐isothermal growth rates of the nucleated and non‐nucleated systems were compared with experimentally determined isothermal growth rates. The Lauritzen and Hoffman growth rate equation, originally developed for isothermal crystallization, was modified to describe the …
