The enthalpies of crystallization of NaCl, KCl, LiCl·H2O, MgCl2·6H2O, CaCl2·6H2O and BaCl2·2H2O from aqueous solution were determined by means of different calculation methods on the basis of the earlier-measured differential and integral enthalpies of solution of the above salts. The obtained crystallization enthalpies are discussed and compared with the appropriate literature data.
The direct measurements of differential enthalpies of solution ΔsolH2, of LiCl·H2O, NaCl, KCl, MgCl2·6H2O, CaCl2·6H2O and BaCl2·2H2O, as the function of molality,m, in the region of concentrated solutions were performed. On this basis the enthalpies of crystallization, ΔcrystHm, were calculated and compared to the appropriate literature data.
New polyurethanes with mesogenic units in the main chain due to the use of a liquid crystalline chain extender were synthesized
from 4,4'-methylenebis(cyclohexyl isocyanate) (HMDI)using diisocyanates of different trans, trans isomer content, a low molecular diol4,4'-bis(6-hydroxyhexoxy)biphenyl (BHHBP) and a high molecular poly(hexyleneadipate)diol
(PHA). The growth of trans, trans isomer content in HMDI used to syntheses of PU induces monotonic growth of melting point, rectilinear growth of crystallization
temperatures and the growth of crystallization enthalpy, both for hard segment polyurethanes and block polyurethanes. The
increase of trans, trans isomer content in HMDI increases also glass transition temperatures and dynamic storage modulus of the polyurethanes.

An analysis of the crystallization behaviour of a new poly(aryl-ether-ether-ketone-ketone), PK99, by differential scanning
calorimetry (DSC) and wide-angle X-ray diffraction (WAXD) is presented. Isothermal crystallization TG were obtained in the
whole range between the glass transition temperature (Tg) and the melting temperature (Tm) as a consequence of the slow crystallization kinetics stemming from the closeness of these transitions. The calorimetric
results, compared with WAXD data, were applied to determine the theoretical melting temperature and crystallization enthalpy.
The DSC and WAXD data were combined in order to calculate the total amount of the crystallizable fraction of the polymer,
and a model was proposed to explain the difference between the fractions of crystallinity observed with these techniques.
The thermal and X-ray data were also correlated with different lamellar morphologies arising from the crystallization conditions.
Finally, DSC experiments on the crystallized sample were used to detect the presence of a rigid amorphous phase which does
not relax at Tg.

The poly(1,4-butylene terephthalate-co-DL-lactide) (BLA) copolymers were successfully prepared by the melt reaction between
poly(1,4-butylene terephthalate) (PBT) and DL-oligo(lactic acid) (OLA) in the presence of 1,4-butanediol (BDO) without any
catalysts. The transesterification between butylenes terephthalate (BT), 1,4-butanediol and lactide (LA) segments during the
reaction was confirmed by the 1H NMR analysis. The chemical structure of the copolymers was further investigated by the 13C NMR and two-dimensional 1H–13C HMQC (heteronuclear multiple quantum correlation) technique. The effect of reaction temperatures and the starting feed ratios
on the molecular microstructures, molecular weights, solubility and thermal stability of the copolyesters was extensively
studied. The sequence length of BT (NBT) was found to play a vital role on the solubility and thermal behaviors of the resulting copolyesters. The copolyesters with
NBT in the range of 2.8 and 7.3 were soluble in chloroform. The B10LA40 copolyester with the shortest NBT of 2.8 exhibited almost the lowest glass-transition temperature (Tg), crystallization temperature (Tc), melting temperature (Tm), crystallization enthalpy (ΔHc) and melting enthalpy (ΔHm) as compared with the other copolyesters. The copolyester of B10LA40 was able to hydrolytically degrade and the fabricated scaffold that showed good biocompatibility towards the human bone marrow

The DSC curve of freeze-dried amorphous sucrose shows the glass transition, the crystallization and the melting (just before
decomposition) of the sample. Sucrose crystallization occurs below 100°C: this phenomenon can therefore be observed with the
microcalorimeter Setaram Micro-DSC used in the scanning mode. Mixtures of amorphous and crystalline sucrose in known proportions
were used to calibrate the instrument. Low level amorphism (down to about 0.5%) could be detected and quantitatively evaluated
on the basis of the crystallization enthalpies determined. The calibration curve obtained can be applied to determine the
degree of amorphism in milled sucrose. A simple gravimetric method, based on the desorption of water induced by recrystallization
of the amorphous layer can be used to obtain similar data more rapidly. This simple method is particularly useful for controlling
the amorphism on line during a process, and is also briefly described.
