The degree of crystallinity of PLAA3.6(Q1h)[T.sub.a] is similar to that of PLAA6(Q1h)[T.sub.a], within the crystallization period, at different annealing temperatures (90[degrees]C[less than or equal to][T.sub.a][less than or equal to]130[degrees]C).
9, the spherulitic radius increases linearly with [t.sup.0.5] during most of regime II of the crystallization period. In the final stage, because of the impingement effect, the linear relationship cannot be maintained.
