Performance Evaluation of PLA against Existing PET and PS Containers
Poly(lactide) (PLA) polymers are environmentally-friendly biodegradable materials that have garnered growing attention in the past few years as food packaging materials since packages made from PLA
A review of poly(lactic acid)-based materials for antimicrobial packaging.
TLDR
This review focuses on the use of PLA in antimicrobial systems for food packaging applications and explores the engineering characteristics and antimicrobial activity of PLA films incorporated and/or coated with antimicrobial agents.
Migration of lactic acid, lactide and oligomers from polylactide food-contact materials
TLDR
Different types of PLA sheet were subjected to migration tests under various conditions and the lactic acid, lactide and oligomers contents of the migration solutions were determined using liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS) and the change in molecular weight was determined by a migration test.
Biodegradable polylactic acid polymer with nisin for use in antimicrobial food packaging.
TLDR
The results of this research demonstrated the retention of nisin activity when incorporated into the PLA polymer and its antimicrobial effectiveness against foodborne pathogens.
Poly(lactic acid)‐modified films for food packaging application: Physical, mechanical, and barrier behavior
Poly(lactic acid) (PLA) is now a very attractive polymer for food packaging application because in addition of being thermoplastic, biodegradable, compostable, and produced from renewable resources,
Poly(lactic acid)
Poly(lactic acid) (PLA) polymers are biodegradable polyesters derived from lactic acid, or 2-hydroxy propionic acid, which is generally obtained by bacterial fermentation of carbohydrates from
Polylactic acid/zinc oxide biocomposite films for food packaging application.
High Molecular Weight Polylactic Acid Polymers
Polylactic acid (PLA) belongs to the family of aliphatic polyesters commonly made from α-hydroxy acids which include polyglycolic acid, [1, 2] or polymandelic acid [3] and are considered

Microencapsulation and dissolution properties of a neuroleptic in a biodegradable polymer, poly(d,l-lactide).
TLDR
Dissolution in aqueous buffer showed that t50% increased with molecular weight and that release rates-surface area increased with increasing drug loading and studies with the hydroalcoholic media revealed that the drug release rate decreased as microcapsule size increased.
Use of polylactic acid for the preparation of microparticulate drug delivery systems.
TLDR
This report reviews the development of particulate drug delivery systems technology based on polylactic acid (PLA) and the different preparation processes and parameters used, the characteristics of microparticles obtained and those parameters affecting the characteristicsOf these systems, are discussed.
In vitro and in vivo studies on bioabsorbable ultra-high-strength poly(L-lactide) rods.
TLDR
The drawn PLLA rods maintained a bending strength exceeding that of human cortical bone in the medullary canal for a period of 8 weeks, suggesting that the drawn P LLA rods may be useful in the repair of fractured human bones.
Wound healing and wound contraction after palatal surgery and implantation of poly-(L-lactic) acid membranes in beagle dogs.
Propylene glycol ingestion causes D-lactic acidosis.
TLDR
It is observed that cats ingesting 1.6 gm of propylene glycol/kg body weight/day developed increased anion gap, and this group of cats developed depression and ataxia, consistent with intoxication by D-lactate, significant not only for animals ingesting diets which contain propyleneglycol, but for humans who receive propylene Glycol-containing medications.
D‐LACTIC ACIDOSIS OF RUMINANTS * †
TLDR
The name D-lactic acidosis of ruminants is proposed for this condition and the suitability of this title can be appraised from the evidence presented.
Infant acceptance of postexercise breast milk.
TLDR
There was a significant difference in acceptance of pre-exercise and postexercise milk as analyzed by analysis of variance, and the decreased acceptance of postex exercise milk was associated with increased lactic acid concentration.
