Starch-Based Nanomateriales as Fillers in Composite Polymeric Films
- 10 Downloads
One of the most common applications of starch based nanosystems is as fillers in composite polymeric films, as they have shown the capability to improve mechanical, barrier and electrical properties of the films. (Le Corre and Angellier-Coussy 2014). Starch based nanosystems, specially SNc, have been of use in order to improve properties of biodegradables films made from biodegradables polymers, however some examples can be found of their use in non-biodegradables composite polymers.
