Definitions of Terms Relating to Crystalline Polymers
The recommendations embodied in this document concern the terminology relating to the structure of crystalline polymers and the processes of polymer crystallization. Reference to actual polymer crystals of microscopic dimensions is essential to define the characteristic properties of crystalline polymers. Such crystals correspond only very approximately to the infinite, three-dimensionally periodic arrangements of atoms defining the ideal crystalline state.
