It has been reported that PHBV exhibits the unusual phenomenon of isodimorphism [3].
Isodimorphism. The most common crystal structure of the P(3HB) and P(3HB-co-3HV) is the a-form, which is produced under the typical conditions of melt, cold, or solution crystallization [36].
Although Xc of P(3HB-co-3HV) changed with composition, P(3HB-co-3HV) owned high [X.sub.c] (>50%) when 3HV content changed from 0 to 95mol% because of isodimorphism [51].
However, the degree of crystallinity of PHBV is only slightly decreased due to the isodimorphism in PHBV (3), (4).
It should be noticed that the isodimorphism for copolymers is characterized by the fiber repeat of P3(HB) lattice for 3HV concentrations between 0 and 47% and the fiber repeat of P3(HV) lattice is observed for 3HV concentrations greater than 50%.
