Processing and characterization of bio-based poly (hydroxyalkanoate)/poly(amide) blends: Improved flexibility and impact resistance of PHA-based plastics
(Journal of Applied Polymer Science, 2015)
One of the most significant limitations to widespread industrial implementation of emerging bioplastics such as poly(lactic acid) and poly(hydroxyalkanoate) (PHA) is that they do not match the flexibility and impact ...
Characterization and biodegradation behavior of bio-based poly(lactic acid) and soy protein blends for sustainable horticultural applications
(Green Chemistry, 2015)
Adipic anhydride-plasticized soy protein (SP.A) was blended with poly(lactic acid) (PLA) at two concentrations (50/50 and 33/67) and was evaluated for use as a sustainable replacement for petroleum plastic in horticulture ...
