Preparation of Poly(vinyl Alcohol) Microparticles for Freeze Protection of Sensitive Fruit Crops
[Abstract] Poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) displays ice recrystallization inhibition (IRI) properties as many antifreeze proteins found in cold tolerant organisms. The molecular architecture and composition (molecular weight and ...
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 ...
