A stereocomplex of poly(lactide)s with chain end modification: simultaneous resistances to melting and thermal decomposition

Author affiliations

Abstract

The simultaneous improvement of the melting temperature (Tm = 224 °C) and the decomposition temperature (T10 = 359 °C) of poly(lactide)s was achieved by the stereocomplex formation of poly(L-lactide) and poly(D-lactide) with bio-based aromatic groups at both initiating and terminating chain ends.
