Paper Abstract

Fourier transform far-infrared spectra over the range 500-100 cm' have been recorded of crystalline isotactic polypropylene (IPP) in four polymorphic forms at 293 and 100K. Differences in the spectra, in particular splitting of certain A line-group modes, reflect the environments of isolated IPP chains within the particular unit cell configurations of the crystal form.
