About this book

In the context of polymer crystallization there are several still open and often controversially debated questions. The present volume addresses issues such as

  • novel general views and concepts which help to advance our understanding of polymer crystallisation
  • nucleation phenomena
  • long living melt structures affecting crystallization
  • confinement effects on crystallization
  • crystallization in flowing melts
  • fluid mobility restrictions caused by crystallites
  • the role of mesophases in the crystal formation

and presents new ideas in a connected and accessible way. The intention is thus not only to provide a summary of the present state-of-the-art to all active works but to provide an entry point to newcomer and graduate students entering the field.
