- ... Simultaneous stiffening, strengthening, and toughening of biodegradable polymers, such as poly(butylene adipate-co-terephthalate) (PBAT) and others, is necessary for their use in packaging and agriculture applications. However, a high content of nanoinclusions is usually required, leading to a tradeoff between composite toughness and strength or stiffness in the reinforcement. Herein, we report an ...
