Properties of chitosan-filled polypropylene (PP) composites: The effect of acetic acid
(Taylor and Francis Group, LLC, 2012-01)
The main objective of this research was to investigate the effect of chitosan content and chemical modification with acetic acid on mechanical and thermal properties of PP/Chitosan. It was found that the tensile strength, ...
Chemical modification of chitosan-filled polypropylene (PP) composites: The effect of 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane on mechanical and thermal properties
(Taylor & Francis Group, 2011-01)
Chitosan was used as filler in polypropylene (PP) polymer. In order to improve compatibility between chitosan and PP, chitosan was chemically modified with 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane (3-APE). The results show that the ...
