Abstract: Thermal properties of Fortronm poly(pheny1ene sulfide) (PPS) polymers of different molecular weights were studied by DSC. Crystallization studies revealed that the ability of these polymers to crystallize decreases with increasing molecular weight. The Avrami equation poorly describes the isothermal crystallization of PPS. Lamellar crystallization was observed for the lowest molecular weight sample. For the other, higher molecular weight polymers the Avrami exponent is always between 2 and 3, suggesting devel…
