|Title:||2π -Twistons in crystalline polyethylene|
|Source:||Zhang, F. (1998-09-04). 2π -Twistons in crystalline polyethylene. Chemical Physics Letters 293 (5-6) : 499-502. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.|
|Abstract:||We demonstrate that a new type of conformational defect involving gradual 360° twists of a polyethylene chain, can exist in polyethylene crystals. Such 2π-twistons can propagate smoothly like solitary waves and they may be useful for resolving twist tension in crystallization processes of polyethylene.|
