This volume introduces and reports on the state-of-the-art regarding both theoretical and experimental aspects of phase transitions in polymeric solutions or melts that lead to crystallization. Written in the form of a set of self-contained reviews, the book is both a modern and comprehensive source of reference and an introduction into the field for nonspecialist researchers and postgraduate students.Then vitrification of the amorphous material detected as the RAF at Tg occurs during cooling from the crystallization temperature down ... In that case vitrification of the RAF occurs during crystallization and one expects significant interactions between vitrification and the crystallization process itself. ... And a second fraction which does not contribute to the step change in heat capacity at the glass transition.
