TopicBiodegradable polymer composites
AnnotationThe work is aimed to control structure and adjust mechanical behaviour, degradability and lifetime of biodegradable thermoplastic materials by incorporation of the B-starch. The B-type of starch is a by-product in a starch industry and its possible applications are searched for. This interdisciplinary work combines chemistry (surface modification of the starch) with polymer physics (optimization of composite structure, structure-property interrelations). It is also important from the environmental point of view.
