This knowledge-based design of polymers with high affinity for crystalline interfaces holds great promise for many areas of science and technology in which crystallization plays a decisive role.
The higher energy crystalline interfaces reduce the free energy barrier for nucleation increasing the probability of forming a stable nuclei, and more importantly increase the number of potential nucleation sites.
