Summary Nonisothermal crystallization behaviors of PVA and poly (vinyl alcohol) and Silica (PVA/SiO2) nanocomposites prepared via a self-assembly monolayer (SAM) technique are investigated in this study. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is used to measure the crystallization temperature and enthalpy of PVA and nanocomposites in nitrogen at various cooling rate. The results show that the degree of crystallinity of PVA and nanocomposites decreases when the SiO2 content increases but increases with an increasing cooling rate. The peak crystallization temperature decreases with an increasing cooling rate.
