PHB was characterized after different industrial processes by Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), Melt Flow Index (MFI), Complex Dielectric Relaxation (CDR) and Size Exclusion Chromatography (SEC). Some properties of PHB were investigated before and after processing, in order to understand how temperature and other extrusion or injection conditions affect the polymer degradation. All the processed samples showed an increasing in the melt flow… CONTINUE READING
