Abstract: Abstract Blends of isotactic polypropylene with amorphous and slightly crystalline ethylene‐propylene‐diene terpolymer (EPDM), prepared by solution blending, have been investigated by optical microscopy and differential scanning calorimetry. Nucleation and crystallization kinetic parameters, such as nucleation rates, nucleation half times, Avrami‐exponents and spherulitic growth rates, have been determined. It has been found that the dispersion of crystalline EPDM in iPP is different from that of amorphous EP…
