    • A Logistic Approach for Kinetics of Isothermal Pyrolysis of Cellulose 

      López-Beceiro, Jorge; Díaz-Díaz, Ana-María; Álvarez García, Ana; Tarrío-Saavedra, Javier; Naya, Salvador; Artiaga, Ramón (MDPI, 2021-03)
      [Abstract] A kinetic model is proposed to fit isothermal thermogravimetric data obtained from cellulose in an inert atmosphere at different temperatures. The method used here to evaluate the model involves two steps: (1) ...
    • A relatively simple look at the rather complex crystallization kinetics of PLLA 

      López-Beceiro, Jorge; Díaz-Díaz, Ana-María; Fernández-Pérez, Enrique; Ferreira, Ignatius; Focke, Walter W.; Artiaga, Ramón (MDPI, 2023-04-14)
      [Abstract] This work demonstrates that, despite the existence of a significant number of works on PLA crystallization, there is still a relatively simple way, different from those already described, in which its complex ...
    • Properties of Mosquito Repellent-Plasticized Poly(lactic acid) Strands 

      Mapossa, Antonio B.; López-Beceiro, Jorge; Díaz-Díaz, Ana-María; Artiaga, Ramón; Moyo, Dennis; Mphateng, Thabang N.; Focke, Walter W. (MDPI, 2021-09)
      [Abstract] Poly(lactic acid) (PLA) is an attractive candidate for replacing petrochemical polymers because it is fully biodegradable. This study investigated the potential of PLA as a sustainable and environmentally friendly ...
