Illumination of Conjugated Polymers Reduces Nucleation Probability and Slows Down Crystal Growth Rate

Yaser AlShetwi, Brahim Bessif, Michael Sommer, Günter Reiter. Macromolecules 54, 2021, 11478–11485

2021-rei--14.jpgUsing the set-up of an optical microscope, we have examined the influence of illumination with white light on the crystallization behavior in molten films of poly(3-(2,5-dioctylphenyl)thiophene) and poly(3-hexylthiophene). We observed a reduction in nucleation density and crystal growth rate induced by illumination. The amount of this reduction increased with the increase in light intensity. Melting samples previously crystallized under illumination and recrystallizing them in the dark showed full reversibility of the crystallization behavior, demonstrating that these changes in the crystallization behavior induced by illumination were not permanent.

Measurements of periodically perturbed dewetting force fields and their consequences on the symmetry of the resulting patterns

Konstantinos Roumpos, Sarah Fontaine, Thomas Pfohl, Oswald Prucker, Jürgen Rühe, and Günter Reiter. Scientific Reports 11 (2021) 13149

2021-rei-02.jpgWe studied the origin of breaking the symmetry for moving circular contact lines of dewetting polymer films suspended on a periodic array of pillars. There, dewetting force fields driving polymer flow were perturbed by elastic micro-pillars arranged in a regular square pattern. Elastic restoring forces of deformed pillars locally balance driving capillary forces and broke the circular symmetry of expanding dewetting holes. The observed envelope of the dewetting holes reflected the symmetry of the underlying pattern, even at sizes much larger than the characteristic period of the pillar array, demonstrating that periodic perturbations in a driving force field can establish a well-defined pattern of lower symmetry. For the presented system, we succeeded in squaring the circle. [more...]



Self-Seeding Procedure for Obtaining Stacked Block Copolymer Lamellar Crystals in Solution

Brahim Bessif, Thomas Pfohl and Günter Reiter. Polymers 13 (2021) 1676

brahim-polymers.jpgWe examined the formation of self-seeded platelet-like crystals from polystyrene-block-polyethylene oxide (PS-b-PEO) diblock copolymers in toluene as a function of polymer concentration (c), crystallization temperature (TC), and self-seeding temperature (TSS). We showed that the number (N) of platelet-like crystals and their mean lateral size (L) can be controlled through a self-seeding procedure. [more...]



Formation of Stacked Three-Dimensional Polymer “Single Crystals”

Stacks of crystalline lamellae all having a uniquely oriented hexagonal shape, referred to as “3D (three-dimensional) single crystals”, were obtained via isothermal crystallization of isotactic polystyrene at a temperature close to the melting point. The height of the stacks of lamellae reached several micrometers corresponding to hundreds of superposed lamellar crystals. We propose that the mechanism of self-induced nucleation allowed propagating the orientation of the basal lamellar crystal to all other lamellae in the stack. [more...]
