Abstract
Within the framework of industrial production, poly (lactic acid) (PLA) is the front runner in the emerging bio-based and compostable plastic market. Despite all its advantages, some PLA properties have been its principal drawbacks for large-scale commercial applications. They include its advanced brittleness at room temperature, low melt strength and its poor thermal resistance. Among all the promising techniques developed to overcome these issues, polymer blending represents one of the interes...
