Polyhydroxyalkanoates Composites and Blends: Improved Properties and New Applications
Composites of Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) have been proven to have enhanced properties in comparison to the pure form of these polyesters. Depending on what polymer or material is added to PHAs, the enhancement of different properties is observed. Since PHAs are explored for usage in diverse fields, understanding what blends affect what properties would guide further investigations towards application. This article reviews works that have been carried out with composite variation for application in several fields. Some properties of PHAs are highlighted and composite variation for their modulations are explored.
