Microperforated Poly(lactic acid) Packaging Systems and the Method of Preparation Thereof

IntroductionAdvanced packaging systems are required to ensure the quality of fresh produce for consumers, who often purchase the products several days after harvest. Supply chain distances are expanding to increase gains in geographical market share for fresh produce growers, which require a longer shelf life to present the product to consumers in ...

B-Cyclodextrins as Nucleating Agents for Polylactide (PLA)

IntroductionPolylactic acid (PLA) is growing rapidly in popularity as an alternative to petroleum-derived plastics for packaging and other applications. It is biodegradable, thermoplastic, and derived from renewable resources. However, there are characteristics associated with PLA that limit its workability. Particularly, the slow crystallization r...
