14 Bio-based films formed by poly(lactic acid) (PLA) a nd poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB) plasticized 15 with an oligomer of the lactic acid (OLA) were used as supporting matrices for an antibacterial 16 agent (carvacrol). This paper reports the main feat ur s of the processing and physico-chemical 17 characterization of these innovative biodegradable material based films, which were extruded and 18 further submitted to filmature process. The effect of he addition of carvacrol and OLA on their 19… CONTINUE READING
