In this paper, chemical functionalization of poly(lactic acid) (PLA) was carried out by using of salicyl aldehyde (SAl) and salicylic acid (SAc) as co-initiators of ring opening polymerization (ROP). Two factorial designs (2) were performed to evaluate the effects of the lactide/catalyst and co-initiator/catalyst molar ratios on the content of aldehyde or… CONTINUE READING
