Solution crystallization analysis by laser light scattering (SCALLS)
Solution crystallization analysis by laser light scattering offers a direct way of studying the solution crystallization of polyolefins. The technique yields similar results to Crystaf, but in a shorter time and with apparently greater sensitivity in some cases. The use of SCALLS is demonstrated for the study of selected propylene/higher a-olefin copolymers. Some conclusions are also drawn regarding the effect of molecular weight on the solution crystallization of polyolefins. © 2009 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
