Original Abstract

Main goal of this work was to prepare PLA grafted with IAH (PLA-g-IAH) which can be potentially used as a compatibilizer in polymer blends due to reactivity of cyclic anhydride groups. Based on the results reaction mechanism was predicted as well as undesired reaction occurring during the radical reaction. Modified PLA could be used in industrial application, especially by chemical compatibilization of grafted PLA with other polymers or fillers coatings. PLA-g-IAH can be potentially used in advanced polymer blends with reduced interfacial tension, also known as “nano-blends”.
