Isotactic polypropylene (iPP) is one of the widely used commercial thermoplastics.
Physical properties of iPP can be tailored to the requirements with respect to structure,
microstructure and processing, thus research continues in the development and
modification of the polymer. With the advancement of chemistry, as our
understanding in tailoring of the molecular structure has enhanced, iPP has become
more of a generic name. [Continues.]
