Customizing the hydrolytic degradation rate of stereocomplex PLA through different PDLA architectures.

Abstract

Stereocomplexation of poly(L-lactide) (PLLA) with star shaped D-lactic acid (D-LA) oligomers with different architectures and end-groups clearly altered the degradation rate and affected the degradation product patterns. Altogether, nine materials were studied: standard PLLA and eight blends of PLLA with either 30 or 50 wt % of four different D-LA oligomers… (More)
