Crystallization of poly(vinylidene fluoride) is investigated by calorimetry and wide-angle X-ray scattering. It is shown that in addition to α and γ crystallization at high temperatures, α crystallization occurs at low temperatures. It is probable that low temperature α crystallization occurs from the segments with high concentration of head-to-head defects which are unable to crystallize at high temperatures. The Hoffman–Weeks plot of α crystallites formed at high temperatures is affected by additional low temperature α crystallization. The change in slope of a Hoffman–Weeks plot for α crystallites, reported in several papers, occurs only in the structure additionally crystallized during cooling to room temperature. The equilibrium melting temperature of the α and γ form is determined from the Hoffman–Weeks plot.
