Download or read book entitled Engineering Biopolymers: Homopolymers, Blends, and Composites by author: Stoyko Fakirov which was release on 07 May 2015 and published by Carl Hanser Verlag GmbH Co KG with total page 865 pages . This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. This unique volume covers the results of the world-wide efforts to implement natural polymers as engineering plastics and the use of their inherent properties. The processing opportunities and the applications of the natural materials as reinforcement of polymer composites are discussed, including the structural, morphological and thermal characterization as well as the mechanical behavior of the obtained materials. Also covered is the preparation of biodegradable homopolymers, blends and composites, which involves chemical reactions, regardless of the type of the starting material.
