The theory of crystal nucleation in polymers. Part I. Modifications of the classical theory

Polimery 2000, No 7-8, 520


DOI: dx.doi.org/10.14314/polimery.2000.520


Summary

The Volmer—Weber [1] and Becker—Döring [3] 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.
Keywords: crystallization, nucleation, free energy of aggregation, cross-section for aggregation reaction, melting temperature
