The surface crystallization of three different polyhydroxy alkanoates (PHAs), poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB), PHB-co-5 weight percent 3-hydroxyvalerate (PHBV5), and PHB-co-12 weight percent 3hydroxyvalerate (PHBV12), under different processing conditions is analyzed with depth profiling attenuated total reflection spectroscopy (ATR) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The results of ATR indicate that there is a crystallinity distribution on the outer 2 microns thick surface layer. The… CONTINUE READING
