Highly Biodegradable and Tough Polylactic Acid–Cellulose Nanocrystal Composite

Muiruri, Joseph K.; Liu, Songlin; Teo, Wern Sze; Kong, Junhua; He, Chaobin

Poly(l-lactide) cellulose nanocrystals-filled nanocomposites were fabricated by blending of cellulose nanocrystals-g-rubber-g-poly(d-lactide) (CNC-rD-PDLA) and commercial PLLA, in which CNC-g-rubber was synthesized by ring opening polymerization (ROP) of d-lactide and a ε-caprolactone mixture to obtain CNC-P(CL-DLA), followed by further polymerization of d-lactide to obtain CNC-rD-PDLA.
