Abstract  

Thermally Stimulated Current (TSC) spectrometry has been applied to the characterization of polymeric materials. The study of a series of amorphous polymers having different physical structures has shown that the compensation parameters are independent of physical aging; contrarily, the activation enthalpy distribution reflects the evolution of the heterogeneity of the amorphous phase. In copolymers, TSC allows us to identify segregated amorphous phases. In semi-crystalline polymers, with semi-rigid chains, we have shown the existence of an amorphous crystalline interphase characterized by a plateau in the temperature distribution of activation enthalpy.
