- ... Low water vapor permeability is highly demanded for biodegradable packaging and agricultural film applications. However, biodegradable poly(butylene adipate-co-terephthalate) (PBAT) films demonstrate poor water vapor barrier properties. A series of nanocomposite (NC) films composed of organically modified montmorillonite (OMMT) dispersed at levels ranging from 0 to 13 wt % in PBAT were thus genera ...
