Thermal stability and thermal degradation kinetics of nanocomposites play an important role in many applications. In this study, nanocomposites based on poly (lactic acid) (PLA)/graphene containing 0.5 and 1 wt% were prepared via solution method. Functionalized graphene were prepared by acid treatment followed by grafting PLA on their surfaces. The functionalized graphene was characterized using fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), Raman, elemental analysis, Fourier transform… CONTINUE READING
