The non-parallel chain structure determined for γ-phase isotactic polypropylene (γ-iPP) is confirmed by Rietveld analysis for highly isotactic high molecular mass iPP crystallized at 200 MPa. The new refinement shows that: (i) stereoregularity or crystallization pressure do not significantly influence the lattice dimensions; (ii) defect inclusion in γ-iPP crystals is unlikely. The α and γ forms have nearly identical bulk internal energy and density, but α-iPP should be normally kinetically favored over γ-iPP which may in turn predominate due to its greater ability to host defects at the crystalline-amorphous interface.
