- ... In this study, poly(L-lactic acid)/polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane derivatives nanocomposites (PLLA/POSS) were prepared using solution casting. Three different POSS molecules, two amino-POSS derivatives with different nonreactive organic substituents attached to the corner silicon atoms (aminopropylheptaisobutyl-POSS, APIBPOSS, and aminopropylheptaisooctyl-POSS, APIOPOSS) and a PLLA-g-POSS or ...

- ... Unplasticized and glycerol plasticized chitosan/graphene (CS/GS) nanocomposites were synthesized via in situ chemical reduction of graphene oxide sheets (GO) with l-ascorbic acid (L-AA) as reductant by solution casting. The reduction of GO with L-AA was investigated to establish the optimal amount of reductant required to produce chemically reduced graphene sheets (GS). The combine effect of both ...
