Abstract
In this work, the thermal degradation and the disintegrability under composting conditions of melt-processed blends based on ethylene-vinyl acetate and thermoplastic starch, EVA/TPS, as well as their nanocomposites, reinforced with natural bentonite, were studied. A special emphasis was first put on the influence of starch on the morphology, thermomechanical properties and hydrophilicity of these blends before composting analysis. In fact, the...
