The transformation of the β-modification into α-modification in isotactic polypropylene was investigated by WAXS, DSC and dilatometric methods. The temperature and time dependent WAXS spectra were made by using high-intensity synchrotron radiation. The β transformation was followed by short time exposures. The transformation of the β-modification was found to act toward the increase in the total crystallinity.
