Paper Abstract

The crystallization of the N-4-nitrophenyl-L-prolinol (NPP) organic glass was investigated by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The results showed the influence of temperature and temporal treatment of the melt on the crystallization processes obtained while cooling from the liquid or d uring heating from the glass state. The behavior of the crystallization kinetics from the glass state was studied under both nonisothermal and isothermal conditions. On the first case, DSC thermograms were recorded at heating rates from 2 to 40oC/min. The crystallization temperature was found to depend on heating rates. Two crystallization phases have been found during the heating of the sample from the glass-like disordered states in the continuing cycling of DSC. In the second case, isothermal crystallization was observed at temperatures ranging between the glass transition and crystallization points.
