A Logistic Approach for Kinetics of Isothermal Pyrolysis of Cellulose
[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) ...
Properties of Mosquito Repellent-Plasticized Poly(lactic acid) Strands
[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 ...
A relatively simple look at the rather complex crystallization kinetics of PLLA
[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 ...
