Title of Journal :
Green polymer, biocomposite, PHBV, calcium carbonate, thermal and barrier properties, DSC and XRD analysis
Background: The objective of this work was to develop biopolymer/calcium carbonate biocomposites with enhanced properties, relative to the neat polymer, by using low-cost filler calcium carbonate (CaCO3). To this end, we selected as matrices Poly (3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyvalerate, PHBV), which has attracted the most considerable interest among the biopolymers in industry.
