Scholarcy highlights

  • The macroscopic properties of semicrystalline polymeric materials are remarkably dependent on their microstructure and morphology
  • This offers an effective way to tailor the properties of such materials through crystal engineering
  • To obtain a particular crystal structure of a polymorphic polymer, proper choice of heterogeneous nucleation agent is frequently used, and highly oriented crystalline materials can be produced through crystallization under shear field
  • It should be pointed out that even though special crystallization pathways have been developed to control the individual structure of a semicrystalline polymer in a specific aspect, synchronous control of multiscale structures with several aspects still remains a challenge
