Biodegradable polymer nanocomposites. Part I. Methods of preparation

Polimery 2006, No 9, 617


Summary

A literature review (83 references) concerning the methods of synthesis of the biodegradable polymer nanocomposites, based on inorganic nanofillers or cellulose, gelatin, chitosan, poly(lactic acid) (PLA), poly(hydroxybutyric acid) (PHB), poly(butylene succinate) (PBS), poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) or aliphatic polyesters, was done. The mechanism of polymer interaction with layered nanofillers was presented using montmorillonite as an example (Fig. 1-3, Table 1). The methods of blending in melt or solution, co-precipitation processes, in-situ polymerizaton, sol-gel technique as well as unconventional methods, mainly High-Energy Ball Milling (HEBM), were described.


Key words: biodegradable polymers, inorganic nanofillers, montmorillonite, nanocomposites, methods of preparation
