Crystallinity in poly(vinyl alcohol) 2. Computer modelling of crystal structure over a range of tacticities

Abstract:

In Part 1 of this series, the behaviour of the crystalline phase in atactic poly(vinyl alcohol) was discussed. This paper examines the detail of the crystal structure by use of molecular mechanics modelling, and extends the prediction of crystal structure across the whole range of tacticity, the extremes of which have yet to be synthesised. The variation in the crystal structure with changes in tacticity is modelled in the light of experimentally observed changes in physical properties. As th...
