A few methods have been developed to estimate the effective energy barrier ([DELTA] E) in nonisothermal crystallization processes using differential thermal data (kinetic parameters) measured at different scanning rates.
The degree of crystallinity was always slightly lower for the nanocomposite sample, indicating a disturbing effect of the clay particles on the crystallization processes. It evolved rather differently during the hot crystallization processes, with a sudden increase at the beginning of the process in the case of the nanocomposite that reflects a faster primary crystallization mainly caused by the increase in nucleation density.
This agrees well with the discussion above for isothermal crystallization processes. These data are also summarized in Table 4.
In other words, the two roles acted by nucleation and growth in different crystallization processes may present different weight factors.
The famous Lauritzen-Hoffmann equation was used to describe the spherulite growth rate in isothermal crystallization processes of homopolymers at higher degrees of supercooling (22):
The experimental results for the heat flow versus time during the isothermal crystallization processes of neat PPS and PPS/TLCP composites at the different crystallization temperatures [T.sub.c] were obtained.
