    The effect of branch structure on the crystallization behavior of HBPEs are investigated by XRD and DSC. The results show the crystallinity of HBPEs decreases with the increase of DB, and even tends to zero. A little of branch structure (low DB) can accelerate the crystallization process of HBPEs, while a large number of branch (high DB) can inhibit it.
