11 Poly ( Lactic Acid )-Based Biomaterials : Synthesis , Modification and Applications

  title={11 Poly ( Lactic Acid )-Based Biomaterials : Synthesis , Modification and Applications},
  author={Lin Xiao and Bo Wang and Guang Yang and Mario Gauthier},
Social and economic development has driven considerable scientific and engineering efforts on the discovery, development, and utilization of polymers. Widespread reliance in everyday life on conventional polymeric materials such as polyolefins has resulted in serious pollution which cannot be resolved in a straightforward fashion. Sustainable development and a green economy both require brand new materials which can avoid the occurrence of these problems. Poly(lactic acid) (PLA), an aliphatic… CONTINUE READING
