The chance for these NM-clusters to be the nest of RER, incipient- or actual microcrystals is obviously very good, considering that these clusters are made of good crystal-forming atoms.
It indicates that the microcrystal size of LLDPE-g-MAH is smaller than that of the pristine LLDPE, which leads to the formation of finer spherulites in LLDPE-g-MAH since the spherulite is a complex, polycrystalline structure consisting of many microcrystals.
