Effect of plasticizers on the barrier and mechanical properties of biomimetic composites of chitosan and clay.

Abstract

Biomimetic composites of polymer and clay are known to possess high mechanical strength and excellent barrier properties. However, the ductility of these composites is always low. One way to overcome this limitation consists on the incorporation of plasticizers which work effectively for the pure polymer. It is shown here that an imidazolium-based ionic… (More)
