International team of experts reviews the latest developments in polymer crystallization

The complexity of polymer crystallization has posed a long-standing challenge to the scientific community, demanding the development and application of a variety of microscopic, calorimetric, and spectroscopic experimental methods. By building our understanding of polymer crystallization, researchers have helped fuel the advancement of nanoscience and nanotechnology.

Offering a comprehensive review of the field, Handbook of Polymer Crystallization examines the latest discoveries, helping readers not only understand polymer crystallization, but also take full advantage of the phenomenon in order to design new materials and develop new applications. The book also explores the many problems that can arise during the crystallization process, setting forth tested and proven solutions to achieve desired results.

Handbook of Polymer Crystallization features contributions from an international team of thermoplastic polymer scientists and covers such topics as:

  • Experimental techniques for studies of polymer crystallization
  • Structure of crystalline polymers, kinetics of nucleation, and growth of the crystalline phase
  • Molecular modeling of polymer crystallization and crystallization kinetics
  • Crystallization in copolymers, miscible and immiscible polymer blends, and polymer composites
  • Crystallization under confinement
  • Effect of flow on crystallization

Figures provided throughout the book help illustrate the core principles and mechanisms of polymer crystallization. In addition, references at the end of each chapter guide readers to the primary literature in order to investigate individual topics in greater depth.

Examining the most important developments in polymer crystallization, this book is recommended for all thermoplastic polymers researchers, offering them the foundation needed to make their own discoveries.
