Poly(propylene carbonate)/starch (PPC/starch) composites with different starch contents were prepared by melt compounding. The biodegradability of the composites was studied by soil burial for a period of 6 months. FTIR study, thermal analysis and morphology observation indicated clearly the changes of the buried specimens. The weight loss curves and the… CONTINUE READING
