Abstract
Blends with different ratios of polylactide and polyamide 6,10 (PA610) have been prepared by melt-mixing using a Brabender mixer equipment. Previously, a rheologically modified polylactide (PLAREx) was obtained through reactive extrusion using a multifunctional epoxide agent. It was expected that unreacted epoxy groups of PLAREx were able to improve the compatibility between the two polymers. SEM observations revealed a logical dependence of the morphology of immiscible phases with composition, ...
