    The melting behavior of isotactic polypropylene was studied in the hot stage mounted on polarizing optical microscope supported by photomonitor. Over a wide range of crystallization temperature there are two main types of spherulites, α and β spherulites for this polymer α spherulites may exist in three forms α1, α2 and mixed of α1 and α2. The α2-form can be obtained at high crystallization temperature above 145°C and α1 can be observed at low crystallization temperatures below 132°C. The mixed α-spherulites can be obtained between 132°C and 145°C. However, the β-phase form small proportion of the total phase not more than 15% and usually exist when the crystallization temperature below 132°C. If the sample crystallized from the melt it show..
