Development of Poly (Lactic Acid) Nanocomposite Films by Ionizing Radiation

Abstract

Poly (lactic acid) and poly (lactic acid) -montmorillonite (MMT) nanocomposite films have been prepared by solvent casting method. Films were irradiated with 60Co radiation facility at various doses in the range of 5 to30 kGy. The effect of gamma irradiation on mechanical properties of neat PLA and nanocomposites is evaluated by the data obtained from tensile testing measurements. The degree of crosslinking is measured by gel content method. Thermal behavior of nanocomposites is studied by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermal gravimetry analysis (TGA). The morphology of the nanocomposites is characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and X ray diffraction. Structural changes in poly (lactic acid) are studied by Fourier transform infrared (FTIR). (author)
