Abstract
Reported is a study evaluating the potential of esterified tannins as plastic additives in poly(lactic acid) (PLA). Tannin esterification using anhydrides was investigated as a route to synthesize tannin esters possessing varying ester chain length and degree of substitution (DS). Esterification decreased the tannin UV absorbance, predominately in the UVB region. However, tannin materials with longer ester chain lengths exhibited melt behaviors suitable for processing in plastics. On compounding into PLA, tannin hexanoate esters lowered the PLA glass transition by 5–6 °C. Shorter chain length tannin esters had a reduced effect on PLA polymer properties. The PLA flexural properties were significantly altered with stiffness decreases of up to 15% depending on ester chain length and loading. Artificial weathering of modified the PLA samples suggests the presence of tannin esters may confer a protection role to PLA on extended exposure. Overall, results suggest scope for the use of tannin esters possessing longer ester chain length as plastic additives.

Abstract Totally bio-based thermosetting polymers which are comparable to synthetic polyester thermosets have been prepared from copolymerization of condensed tannin–fatty acid esters with vegetable oils. Oxidative copolymerization of tannin linoleate/acetate mixed esters with linseed oil and tung oil produced polymer films ranging from soft rubbers to rigid thermosets. Tannin incorporation into the formulations was essential for the final product to achieve necessary mechanical strength. Films ...

Abstract Pine bark represents an interesting byproduct from the forest that can be used as a source of antioxidants. To study the phenolic fraction of this matrix, Pinus radiata bark was extracted with a 75% ethanol solution at both bench- and pilot-scales followed by an analysis of the extraction yield variation, chemical composition (total phenolics content, tannins content, and phenol composition determined by RP-HPLC–DAD–MS and GPC) and antioxidant properties (free radical scavenging capacit...

In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in diets rich in fruits and vegetables and this is mostly due to their presumed role in the prevention of various degenerative diseases, such as cancer and cardiovascular diseases. This is mainly due to the presence of bioactive compounds, such as polyphenols, carotenoids, among others. Polyphenols are one of the main classes of secondary metabolites derived from plants offering several health benefits resulting in their use as functional fo...

In recent years, much attention has been focused on research to replace petroleum-based commodity plastics, in a cost-effective manner, with biodegradable materials offering competitive mechanical properties. Biopolymers have been considered as the most promising materials for this purpose. However, they generally present poor mechanical properties regarding processability and end-use application, since the fragility and brittleness exhibited during thermoformation can limit their potential for ...

Chemoprevention, especially through the use of naturally occurring phytochemicals capable of impeding the process of carcinogenesis at one or more steps, is an ideal approach for cancer management. Despite accomplished outcomes in preclinical settings, its applicability to humans has met with limited success for many reasons including inefficient systemic delivery and bioavailability of promising chemopreventive agents. We have recently introduced a novel concept of “nanochemoprevention” that ut...

Abstract The degradation of polylactide (PLA)/Cloisite 30B nanocomposites under natural weathering was investigated as a function of clay loadings (1, 3 and 5 wt.%) for up to 130 days using Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy, size exclusion chromatography (SEC), nanoindentation measurements, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). For comparative purposes, the neat PLA was also considered. The FT-IR results sh...

Reported is the preparation of various condensed tannin stearates and the associated chemical characterization and thermal properties of these products. Stearate esters of condensed tannins from both quebracho and pine bark extracts were prepared in generally high, isolated yields from reaction with stearic acid chloride. Tannin esterification was confirmed by both Fourier transform infrared and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), and the average degree of stearate substitution was calculated from...

Abstract In order to understand the influence of the inherent chemistry on the relative thermal stability of condensed tannins, the thermal degradation behaviors of various radiata pine bark extracts have been investigated using thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). Generally, results suggest pine bark extract fractions may be readily processed at temperatures below 200°C if co-extracted polysaccharides contents are minimized. Those extracts possessing greater carbohydrate content and lower tannin p...

Polylactide (PLA) is a potential candidate for the partial replacement of petrochemical polymers because it is biodegradable and produced from annually renewable resources. Characterized by its high tensile strength, unfortunately the brittleness and rigidity limit its applicability. For a great number of applications such as packaging, fibers, films, etc., it is of high interest to formulate new PLA grades with improved flexibility and better impact properties. In order to develop PLA-based bio...

It is evident that in the future, the synthesis of polymeric materials will be limited to renewable sources, and incorporation of fossil-based raw materials will be restricted to those from recycled materials. Therefore, there has been an increase in academic and industrial research focused on obtaining different types of high-quality polymers using environmentally friendly alternatives. Tannins are a natural source of polyphenols that are widely distributed in nature. Due to their structural ch...

The effectiveness of tannic acid as antimicrobial and wound healing for burns have been shown for a century; however, uncontrolled target dosage may result in undesirable side-effects. Remarkably, tannic acid polyphenols compounds crosslinked with polymeric materials produce a strong composite containing the beneficial properties of this tannin. However, investigation of the crosslink structure and its antibacterial and regenerative properties are still unknown when using nanocellulose by mechan...

Abstract A wholly bio-composite based on poly (lactic acid) (PLA) and tannin acetate was successfully prepared via in situ reactive extrusion using dicumyl peroxide (DCP) to improve interfacial adhesion. The composites based on PLA and tannin acetate with high acetylation degree exhibited increased molecular weight as compared with reactive extruded PLA, together with the improvement of Young’s modulus and tensile strength. The rheology results showed that reactive extruded PLA/tannin acetate co...

Their intrinsic susceptibility to weathering degradation limits their applications. This review discusses the accelerated weathering of PLA and how fillers, reinforcements, and additives affect photo-degradation. The changes in molecular weight, thermal and mechanical properties, as well as surface morphology, are highlig...
