Associating Functional Groups Change The Crystal Structure Of Polyethylene-Based Polymers

Polyolefins, especially polyethylene (PE), are the most prevalent class of polymers in the world due to their broad range of applications, from packaging, agriculture, construction, healthcare, safety apparel, and transportation. Consequently, fundamental research on PE, like crystallization, is valuable and can lead to significant improvements in material properties and new products. To study the crystallization and crystal structures of PE-based materials, growing polymer single crystals from dilute solutions is a commonly-used method. PE single crystals grown from dilute xylene solution...
