Isotactic polypropylene (iPP) exhibits an interesting polymorphic behavior [1-5], sharing four crystalline structures: monoclinic [alpha]-form [6, 7], trigonal [beta]-form [1, 8-12], triclinic [gamma]-form [13, 14] and smectic phase [15, 16], Among these crystalline forms, [beta]-form is a metastable phase and can only be obtained under the following processing conditions: melt crystallization in the presence of specific heterogeneous nucleating agent (NA) [17, 18], by directional crystallization in certain temperature [19], or from melts subjected to shear [20, 21].
