What is "Degree of Crystallinity" - Definition & Explanation

The amount, expressed as a percentage by mass, or linear polymer that is generally present in a crystalline form, the remainder of the polymer being present in an amorphous state.

The results obtained differ according to the method used, so comparisons should be limited to one method of measurement.
