Crystallization

The act of selling an asset and immediately buying the same asset back. One does this for tax purposes; that is, one sells the asset in order to realize a capital loss, but buys it back because one believes it still represents a solid investment. Most tax agencies have rules forbidding or limiting crystallization.

Generally, crystallization processes that occur during polymer flow show increased [T.sub.c], nucleation, and crystallization rates.
A comparison of the overall crystallization rate parameters calculated from both cold and melt isothermal crystallization processes revealed that the rate of crystallization from the glassy state proceeded faster than that from the melt state.
The activation energy continuously decreases with increasing [TiO.sub.2] content, suggesting that the additional loading of [TiO.sub.2] content into PCL further increases the number of heterogeneous nucleation during the isothermal crystallization processes. In addition, it should be noticed that the decline in the molecular weight of PCL10 is another factor for resulting in further decreases in the activation energy.
It seems reasonable to think that if the crystallization processes al different temperatures change the instantaneous crystallization in 2D or 3D, a change in the morphology should be expected.
By introducing LCB into isotactic polypropylene (iPP), the crystallization processes were greatly accelerated, and the transfer of chain segments from the melt to the crystal growth surface was restrained (34).
Figure 7 schematically shows the crystallization processes via homogeneous and heterogeneous nucleation.
