- The melting and crystallization behaviors of poly(lactic acid) (PLA)/polypropylene (PP) and PLA/PP/PP-graft-maleic anhydride (PP-g-MAH) blends were investigated by means of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and polarized light microscopy (PLM). The results showed that the pure PLA and the PLA in the blends were very difficult to crystallize during the cooling process. PP-g-MAH had a weak restraint on the non-isothermal crystallization of the blends but it promoted the growth of the spherulites during isothermal crystallization process. It was also found that blending PLA with PP decreased the size of spherulites.
