Preparation and Characterization of Bionanocomposite Films Based on Wheat Starch and Reinforced With Cellulose Nanocrystals
(Springer Nature, 2021)
[Abstract] In recent times, the attention of scientific community has been focusing on the replacement of petroleum-based polymers by others more environmentally friendly. In this sense, bionanocomposites based on ...
Influence of the Hydrophilicity of Montmorillonite on Structure and Properties of Thermoplastic Wheat Starch/Montmorillonite Bionanocomposites
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2021-11)
[Abstract] The increasing environmental pollution with petroleum-based plastics has advanced research on biodegradable polymers. Thermoplastic starch (TPS) is one promising candidate due to wide availability from various ...
Isosorbide Plasticized Corn Starch Filled With Poly(3-Hydroxybutyrate-co-3-Hydroxyvalerate) Microparticles: Properties and Behavior Under Environmental Factors
[Abstract] In this work, new green and fully biodegradable composites, based on corn starch, plasticized with two different amounts of isosorbide and filled by poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyvalerate) (PHBV) microparticles, ...
Effect of different plasticizers on thermal, crystalline, and permeability properties of Poly(3–hydroxybutyrate–co-3–hydroxyhexanoate)films
Poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyhexanoate) (PHBH) films were prepared using a cast film technique. Dioxane was chosen over other polymer solvents as it resulted in homogenous films with better morphology. Several ...
