The Structure Evaluation of Polypropylene Fibres by Computational Resolution of WAXS

  • Václav Marcian

Methods of wide-angle X-ray scattering (WAXS) are advantageously used for obtaining detailed information on molecular as well as supermolecular structure of synthetic fibres. Crystallinity is one of basic characteristics of supermolecular structure of fibre-forming polymers, determining their physical and mechanical properties. Even if it is possible to use many other methods, the WAXS is frequently used for crystallinity evaluation because its results are influenced neither by the presence of additives, molecular orientation nor porosity.
