PODA is a side-chain crystalline polymer
, where the interchain crystallization forms a second type of physical crosslink.
One way to gauge the crystallization rate is to melt the crystalline polymer
and quench the melt in cold water.
The second volume is devoted to aspects of applications, among them, fluoroalkyl acrylate polymers and their applications, fluoroplastics and fluoroelastomers: basic chemistry and high-performance applications, the commercial synthesis and applications of poly(vinylidene fluoride), fluoridated ionomers and ionomer membranes: monomer and polymer synthesis and applications, and fabricating flexible transparent nanohybrids with heat-resistant properties using a fluorinated crystalline polymer

The device, made from a stiff, crystalline polymer
, can be implanted in a patient's tumor using a biopsy needle.
POM is a highly crystalline polymer
most noted for its high stiffness, mechanical strength, abrasion resistance and good resistance to chemicals and solvents.

," Nature 353, 55-57 (1991).
It comprises a liquid crystalline polymer
layer with a glass transition temperature in the range from 80[degrees]C.
The R/flex[R] 3000 family of liquid crystalline polymer
(LCP)-based circuit materials features a single-clad lower melt point and a double-clad high melt temperature laminate.
The R/flex 3000 family of thin-film, flexible, adhesiveless liquid crystalline polymer
laminates was developed specifically for use as a core for single layer or to build up multi-layer constructions.
* Introduction of a new crystalline polymer
system, syndiotactic polystyrene.
The article, "Crystalline polymer
nanofibers with ultra-high strength and thermal conductivity," was published in Nature Communications (DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-03978-3).
Nucleating agents are capable of increasing the number of nucleating centers in the crystalline polymer
and improving toughness.
