Effects of Crystals, Nano-reinforcement, and Electrospinning on Confinement in Semicrystalline Polymers.

Ma, Qian.

Abstract: This thesis focuses on new insights into the characterization of the confinement that exists in semicrystalline polymers, polymer nanocomposites and electrospun fibers using the combination of thermal analysis techniques and other experimental approaches. The concept of rigid amorphous fraction, RAF, was introduced to explain the confinement exerted by crystals over four decades ago. It ... read more
