- ... Thermoplastic starch (TPS) composites were manufactured from potato starch, wood fibers (WF) with content up to 41.5 wt% and deep eutectic solvents (DES) based on choline chloride with urea or glycerol (Gl) as well as imidazole (Im) with Gl. Processing method: mechanical mixing of the components followed by thermocompression with simultaneous WF modification. DES can play a triple role of starch p ...
