Abstract

Poly(ester-co-ether) as a potential ‘‘green’’ plasticizer for poly(lactic acid) (PLA) was synthesized from diethylene glycol adipate (DEAP) with neopentylglycol adipate (NPAP). The chemical structure of poly (diethylene glycol adipate -co- neopentylglycol adipate) (PDNA) was characterized by FTIR . PLA was plasticized by adding various PDNA contents. Tensile measurements results showed that with the addition of plasticizer, the tensile strength of the PLA/PDNA blends decreased and the elongation at break was greatly improved. Rheological properties of PLA/PDNA blends were investigated by a parallel plate rheometer (PPR).
