Polypivalolactone (PPVL) is a highly crystalline polyester formed either by nucleophilic or electrophilic ring‐opening polymerization of 2,2‐dimethyl‐β‐propiolactone, commonly known as pivalolactone (PVL). The thermal properties and crystallization kinetics of the polymer formed under reaction injection molding (RIM) conditions were studied. The crystallization kinetics of PPVL were measured using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and Avrami theory was used to interpret the bulk crystallizatio…
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.
