Preparation and characterization of poly(lactic acid)/poly(butylene adipate-co-terepthalate)/clay nanocomposites

Poly(lactic acid) (PLA) is a biodegradable plastic that is brittle. Because of this nature, PLA has a limitation in its usage. The toughness of PLA can be improved by adding plasticizer. In this study, poly(butylenes adipate-co-terepthalate) was added to act as a plasticizer for PLA. The new biodegr...
