Abstract

It was established that polyethylene and polyoxymethylene crystallize epitaxially on NaCl cleavage faces over a temperature range in which the usual polymer single crystals dissolve but a crystallization memory remains due to very small quantities of self- seeding nuclei persisting in the solution. By performing this epitaxial crystallization in the presence of self- seeding nuclei, it could be established that epitaxialrystallization at these elevated temperatures involves only the very largest molecules in the distribution.
