Abstract

Crystallization kinetics of β-nucleated isotactic polypropylene (β-iPP) under isothermal conditions were investigated by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). iPP was nucleated by a trisamide derivative, namely tris-2,3-dimethyl-hexylamide of trimesic acid (TATA). In the presence of TATA possessing dual nucleating ability, the formation of the α- and β-form occurs simultaneously. An isothermal stepwise crystallization (ISC) method is suggested in this work, which can separate the crystallization process of β- and α-iPP and consequently their crystallization kinetics can be evaluated separately. The results indicated that the mechanism of crystallization changes in temperature especially in the vicinity of the upper critical temperature of the formation of the β-phase. In addition, it was found that the ratio of the growth rates of β- and α-modification determines the characteristics of crystallization and influences the apparent rate constant of crystallization of both polymorphs
