Energy bands in plastic materials

  1. Jan 12, 2015 #1
    Plastic materials are said to have large gaps between the valence band and the conduction band. But what is its valence band properties? Why do plastic melt easily compared to the glass? What is the relationship between energy bands and melting? And what are the right words in goggling this? "Energy bands in plastics" has zero hits.
