crystallization

the fixing of a floating charge on assets. Where money borrowed by a company is secured by a floating charge over the company's assets and undertaking, the company may continue trading and dispose of any assets in the course of that business. If the company defaults on its obligations under the terms of the loan agreement, the charge will crystallize, that is, immediately attach to the assets owned by the company at that time. Crystallization is therefore the process by which a floating charge becomes fixed on to particular assets.

The reason is that there exists crystallization process at cooling rate of5/min, but the melting crystallization almost do notoccure at higher cooling rate, which also confirms the important effect of cooling rate on the crystallization of PLLA.

For example, by heating the material before it can crystallize, researchers can examine the crystallization process itself on millisecond time scales.
In everyday life, though, there is usually some crystalline impurity in contact with the liquid that will trigger the crystallization process, and therefore the freezing.
Crystallization rate was estimated by the reciprocal of time to the local maximum of the temperature curve--the time moment when the exothermal effect of the crystallization process was the most intensive (Fig.
