Herein, the effect of polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) on compatibility, crystallization and thermal stability of polylactic acid (PLA)/polycaprolactone (PCL) blends was investigated. Scanning electron microscopy results revealed that the blend morphology became finer and much more uniform once lower contents of POSS were used. However, the compatibility level was notably reduced once the nanoparticle content increased which was attributed to the lower dispersion quality of POSS at… CONTINUE READING
