Abstract: We investigated wavelength dependence of birefringence (Δn) for cellulose acetate propionate (CAP) films stretched at various draw ratios (DRs) and strain rates (SRs), by comparing the result of cellulose triacetate (CTA). CAP exhibited an extraordinary wavelength dispersion of Δn although CTA showed an ordinary dispersion, indicating that Δn of CAP is determined by acetyl and propionyl groups. The extraordinary dispersion for CAP became stronger at larger DR and higher SR. The thermal analysis data suggested that the hot-stretching induces the crystallization of CAP and the crystal size increases with increasing DR and SR. Furthermore, two-dimensional X-ray diffraction pattern of CAP exhibited the orientation of the induced crystal as well as that of CTA, which is one of semi-crystalline polymers. These results mean that the acetyl orientation in CAP becomes stronger than the propionyl orientation. This conclusion is reasonable because acetyl group is more tightly confined to a pyranose ring than propionyl.
