Abstract

Isothermal crystallization kinetics of poly(hexamethylene succinate) (PHS) were investigated by using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Primary and secondary crystallization behaviors were described satisfactorily by a modified Avrami model. The obtained results suggest that primary crystallization under isothermal conditions involves three-dimensional spherulite growth with athermal nucleation, and secondary crystallization displays approximate one-dimensional crystal growth.
