Abstract

Using X-ray diffraction data, the behaviour of Kevlar49 fibres at lowtemperatures, up to -100xB0;C, has been analysed. During cooling, the basal plane of the monoclinic unit cell13; shrinks whereas the c- (unique, chain axis) length is not significantly affected. In contrast, in the return heating cycle to ambient temperature, the basal plane expands and contraction occurs along the chain direction. The unit cell registers a reduction in volume in both the cooling and heating cycles. Conspicuously,after a cycle of cooling and heating, the unit cell does not return to its initial volume.
