Abstract [en]

Theaim of this work was to investigate a methodology fortheimprovement ofthemechanicalpropertiesof sustainablebiodegradablebiocompositesbased on polylactide (PLA).Cellulosicfibrewas incorporated as a reinforcing agent for improvement ofthemechanicalpropertiesofthebiocomposites. A coupling agent was synthesized and employed in order to enhancetheinterfacial adhesion of two components via a melt blending process. FT-IR spectra showed presences of specific functional groups of maleic anhydride onthebackbone ofthePLA afterthegrafting.Themodulus of PLA was considerably raised after incorporation ofthefibre. Furthermore, an addition of a coupling agent in PLAbiocompositeswas also able to remarkably increasethestiffness ofthematerial.
