The theory of crystal nucleation in polymers. Part I. Modifications of the classical theory
Polimery 2000, No 7-8, 520
SummaryThe Volmer—Weber  and Becker—Döring  nucleation theories are described and modified to adjust the classical theories to polymer crystallization with particular reference to cluster shape and orientation and concentration of the crystallizing molecules. Nucleation is also discussed in relation to translational and/or rotational diffusion of the crystallizing molecules.
